The Editorial Board wishes to render this Annual Bibliography as complete as 
possible, especially with regard to publications appearing in Indb. Authors are 
particularly requested to supply the Kern Institute with copies of any articles dealing 
with Indian archeology and allied subjects so that they may be duly noted in further 
issues of the Bibliography. 


Since the appearance of Volume VII of this Bibliography, in June 1934, some 
important changes have taken place in the Editorial Board. In the Foreword to that 
volume we have already had occasion to note that, owing to Dr. FAbri's departure 
to India, his connexion with the editing of the Annual Bibliography of Indian 
Arihaology has been severed. Here we wish again to record our great indebtedness 
to Dr. FA MI for the amount of labour devoted by him to the editorial work for a 
number of years. Whatever success the Bibliography has achieved U in no small 
measure due to his indefatigable industry. 

Mr. Naoshiro Fukcsiiima, Professor of Sanskrit in the Imperial University of 
Tokyo, who for the last two years had rendered us valuable assistance in the capacity 
of an honorary editor, has now acceded to our wish and accepted a place in the 
Editorial Board. It has been with some difficulty that we have |>ersuadcd him to assume 
a position more in agreement with the great significance of his collaboration by which 
we arc enabled to include all important Japanese publications in this bibliography. In 
his letter of a6th August 1934 Professor FtnOStmiA declared his willingness to join 
our Editorial Board 'in the name of the international cooperation between scholars’; 
we welcome his consent given on this account all the more gladly. 

With no less satisfaction do we welcome Dr. Bimala Chum Law of Calcutta as 
a new member of our Editorial Board. It is fit that the country* which occupies the 
most important and, indeed, the central place in our Bibliography should be represented 
among its Editors. Dr. Law has not only distinguished himself especially in the domain 
of Buddhist studies (with which Indian archaeology is so closely associated), but he 
moreover enjoys a well merited reputation as a generous patron of antiquarian research. 
In both these capacities he has undertaken to further the interests of this annua) 
publication and it is mainly due to his vigorous support that we are able to bring 
out the present volume essentially on the same lines as had been followed in pre- 
vious issues. 

Dr. A. J. Bkrmet Kkmfers, whose name appears now for the first time among 
the Editors, is not indeed new to the work, as several years back he voluntarily 
rendered us valuable help in the editorial work. Certain measures of economy, sug- 
gested by him and put into practice in the present volume, have resulted in a con- 
siderable saving of space without, however, affecting the essential elements. The 
measures adopted find sufficient justification in the serious decrease in income, suffered 


by the Kern Institute of late years which, however natural it may be in the prevailing 
economic conditions, was none the less alarming and called for immediate redress. 

As stated in the Foreword to the Annual Bibliography for Ikr year /gjl (p. V), 
the Government of Netherlands India had been obliged to reduce their annual grant 
towards this publication from jooo to 1000 guilders. Whosoever is but slightly acquainted 
with the distressing financial situation by which the said Government is faced will not 
marvel that a further reduction from 1000 to 500 guilders has now appeared to be 
unavoidable. We have, indeed, every reason to be thankful that the grant-in-aid which 
hitherto has been our main stay has not been withdrawn altogether. 

The is not all. The drastic reduction of our chief subsidy was attended by a 
gradual fall in members and supporters. Last but not least, the fall of the Pound 
which was closely followed by that of the Rupee, added to our embarassment. As a 
result, the Bibliography is now supplied to our Indian members at a price (via. the 
annual fee of membership) below the cost of production. And this term should be 
understood as applying merely to the printing charges, the laborious editorial work 
being left out of account. It would be a natural and certainly not unreasonable 
expedient to raise the annual fee of six Rupees which has been fixed for members 
in India. It is however clear that such a measure might quite well have a contrary 
effect from that in view. Besides, it is our wish to keep the Bibliography within reach 
of that honourable but often indigent class of Pandits who from ancient times have 
regarded the essence of the (aitrat as their principal wealth. 

In this dilemma w« have ventured to appeal for aid and support to those Rulers 
of the autonomous States of India who enjoy the reputation of generous patrons of 
indigenous art and antiquarian research. It seemed by no means unreasonable to hope 
that they might be found willing to favour an enterprise calculated to promote the 
noble cause of Indian archxology. 

The result of our firat steps in this direction has not belied our expectations. 
The Government of H. E. H. the Nizam of Hyderabad-Deccan, the premier ruling 
chief of India, was the first to sanction an annual grant of Rs. 200.— for the period 
of five years. Their Highnesses, the Maharajas of Travancore and of Cochin have 
likewise lent their generous support and it is hoped that others among the enlight- 
ened rulers of the more progressive States will listen to our appeal. It is gratifying 
that the Government of Ceylon, too. have evidenced their appreciation of the Biblio- 
graphy by sanctioning a grant-in aid of Rs. 250.— In this connexion we wish also 
gratefully to record a gift received from His Highness the Maharaja Gaekwar of 
Baroda for the furtherance of the work of the Kern Institute in general in addition to 
a very liberal donation for the preservation and publication of the ancient manuscripts 
of Bali 1 . Another most welcome gift was received by us from H. H. Sir Kaiser 
SiiuM SHDt Jung Bahadur Rana. K. B. E.. Commanding General of Nepal. The gracious

letter, dated the 8th January 1935, in which he communicated to us his readiness to 
render his support to the editing of the Annual Bibliography, conveyed at the same 
time the important news that Sir Kaiser Shumsher has assumed the position of 
Director General of Archeology for Nepal and in that capacity has undertaken 
explorations on the ancient site of the Lumbinivana, the birth-place of the Buddha. It 
is a matter ot no small gratification that the archaeological interests of a country par- 
ticularly rich in ancient remains have now been entrusted to such able hands. We wish 
Sir Kaiser Shumsher every success in his great undertaking. 

Notwithstanding the imposing array of combined auxiliary forces which have come 
to the rescue and which undoubtedly bode a substantial improvement in the financial 
position of the Bibliography, we have deemed it prudent to adopt certain measures, 
alluded to above, which, while tending to reduce the bulk of the present volume, have 
not, we believe, resulted in any material loss. Some of the measures adopted, such 
as the employment of certain abbreviations, will indeed hardly be noticed even by those 
who have had occasion to handle the volumes previously published. Some, such as the 
omission of academic and honorific titles in connexion with the names of authors, will 
perhaps be regretted, but this measure having been carried through systematically, the 
regret need not be embittered by envy. An alteration of some greater import relates 
to archeological and historical journals which in the preceding issues used to be enu- 
merated under the letter A (Periodicals) in the different sections of the bibliography 
to which they belong, the full contents of each journal being added in each case. In 
the present volume the titles and contents of periodicals have been noticed in the 
bibliography proper only in exceptional cases, vis., when the various articles contained 
in a journal are not separately dealt with or when a particular issue of a journal has 
been made the subject of a review. The list of abbreviations, however, which was a 
constant feature of previous volumes has not only been retained, but has now been 
extended to a complete list of the periodicals with which we are concerned'. Those 
persons who are in the habit of consulting our Bibliography will be best able to judge 
whether this new arrangement is likely to cause any inconvenience. If such proved to 
be the case, it would be an inducement for reverting to the old arrangement. We 
trust, however, that such a retrograde movement will not be called for and that, on 
the contrary, the bibliography will be found to have gained in practical utility. 

The modified method now adopted may easily lead to a misunderstanding with 
regard to the exhaustiveness of the present issue as compared with its predecessors. 
It will be seen that it comprises 706 entries, whereas volume VII, which appeared a 
year ago, contains 75J items. These figures, however, include respectively 16 and 67 
titles of periodicals so that the number of books and articles dealt with, has not fallen 
but has on the contrary slightly encreased. 

1 Each title is followed by a reference to those numbers

The introductory portion of the present volume is, we believe, more represent- 
ative than has been the case with previous issues. A novel feature is the general 
article on exploratory work in India daring the year under review. We arc greatly 
indebted to the scholars of different nationality who have contributed the various 
articles constituting the Introduction. Some amongst them like Sir Richard Burn, Mr, 
G. Yazdaxi, Mr. S. Paranavitaxa and Dr. F. D. K. Boscn we may regard as our 
regular collaborators. The names of others are now met with for the first time in 
the Introduction, though not perhaps in the bibliography proper; their co-operation is 
all the more welcome. They are M. Henri Marchal, directeur du service archco* 
logique dc l lndo-Chine, Mr. H. E. STAnnoN, I. E. S. (ret.), F. A. S. B., late Director 
of Public Instruction in Bengal, and Dr. W. D. van Wijxgaarden, Conservator of 
the Museum of Antiquities, Leyden. 

The able article devoted by the last-named scholar to Dr. Ernst HrRzrr.i.D's 
startling discoveries at Pcrsepolis is illustrated by two excellent photographs which we 
owe to the courtesy of the discoverer himself. We wish here to thank Dr. Hkrzku.d 
for his kindness in placing them at our disposal. The photographs here published in 
connexion with the contributions of Mr. Paraxavitana, Mr. Stapleton and Mr. Yazdani 
have been supplied by these authors themselves. The same is the case with the very 
fine photographs belonging to the concluding paper by Dr. F. D. K. Bosch, Director 
of Archxology in Netherlands India. Those relating to Kashmir we owe to the kindness 
of Mr. Kak, formerly Director of Archxology in that State. The photographic prints 
which M. George Canto, Director of the French School of Hanoi, allowed us to 
publish along with M. Marchal's article have been supplemented by a few particu- 
larly fine views which we received from the Musce Guimet through the kind inter- 
mediary of the Countess G. de Coral REmusat. 

Of the text-illustrations the sketch-map of Bengal has been prepared by Major J. 
J. Muldxr, late of the Survey Department of Netherlands India. For the next one 
we are indebted to the friendship of Licut.-Colonel Th. van E»», R. E. (ret.). Figures 
3—4 we owe to the Director of the tUoU Frantaiu if Ex trim* Orient-, whilst, last 
but not least, the attractive little sketch of the ancient mosque of Cheribon in Java 
is a good specimen of the draughtsmanship of Mr. Th. P. Galbtin. 

This time the task of collecting and arranging the very extensive bibliographical 
materials was entrusted to Dr. Hermann Goetz and Dr. A. J. Bernrt K km reus. They 
have discharged it in a manner which will command satisfaction. Dr. B. C. Law, 
the new member of the Board of Editors, has now assumed the responsibility for 
books and articles written in the Indian vernaculars. Professor N. Fukusmma, our 
Japanese collaborator and his able assistant. Mr. Otoya Tanaka, have again favoured 
us with their valuable assistance with regard to archxological publications brought 
out in their>-. In the editorial work we have received welcome help from Mrs. 
D. Kukxex-W ickstked, Frau Dr. Hermann GotTZ. M. Jean Buiiot, Mr. J.S. Furnivaix. 
I.C.S., late Commissioner of Settlements and Land Records. Burma, and Mr. VV. 


H. Nicholes, formerly Chief Engineer, P. W. D., Madras. We wish here to record our 
gratitude for this help as well as for all other as s istance by which the work has benefited. 

We should not conclude this Foreword without mentioning the publishers Messrs. 
E. J. Brill, Ltd., Leyden, as well as Messrs. L. van Leer & Co., the well-known 
lithographers and collotype-printers of Amsterdam. We record with satisfaction that 
Mr. Th. Folkers, the newly appointed Manager of the firm first-mentioned, has 
evinced no less interest and readiness to help with reference to this annual publication 
than we were accustomed to experience from his predecessor, the late Mr. C. Pel- 
tf.nbvrg, whose courteous personality will remain in our grateful memory.

The 6 ,h April 1933 was ihe hundredth anniversary of the birth day of Hendrik 
Kkxn. It is fit that in the present volume appertaining to the year 1933 some lines 
of reverential remembrance should be consecrated to the memory of the great scholar 
after whom the Kern Institute has been named 

After having taken his Doctor's degree in 1855 at the University of Leyden on 
a thesis relating to the Achxmenian inscriptions, he very soon started work on 
VarAhamihira's Rrthaliamkila, of which he published an edition and an English 
translation. About the same time he translated Kalidasa’s fiakumlata into his mother- 
tongue. In the spring of 1863 he was appointed * Anglo-Sanskrit Professor* in Queen’s 
College at Benares Kulm always retained pleasant memories of his contact with the 
representatives of indigenous scholarship. His stay in India, however, lasted only little 
more than a year. In 1865 he returned to his native country where he had been 
called to occupy the newly founded chair of Sanskrit and comparative philology in 
the Leyden University. He thus became the first Sanskrit Professor in Holland and 
may be rightly considered as the founder of .Sanskrit studies in that country. Until 
the year 1903, when he reached the age of seventy, he occupied the Leyden chair 
and numerous young scholars benefited by his teaching. 

It is not our object here to relate in detail the story of his life, which was 
entirely spent in the service of scholarship and was free from striking events. Nor do 
wc wish to survey the numerous works relating to so many fields of research which 
he has given to the learned world in the course of his life. After he had passed 
away on the 4'* July of the year 1917 at the age of eighty-four, several obituaries 
have appeared containing a full account of his life and work. 

The range of his studies was indeed incredibly wide and incredibly great was the 
number of languages with which he was familiar and which he could employ with 
ease both in conversation and correspondence. Kern was above all a Master of 
languages. He not only commanded the whole range of Indo-European languages 
both ancient and modern, but had also made an extensive study of the Indonesian 
tongues to which he applied the same methods of philological research as were 
practised with reference to the first-mentioned group. Especially in the domain of Old- 
Javanese philology Kern was one of the great pioneers.

the Memorial Volume presented to Ksaw 00 the occasion of his 70* birthday. 

Aoaul biLliogiaphy, VIII. 


Linguistic study, however, did not exclusively occupy his attention. On the one 
hand, it led him on to the investigation of religions, particularly Buddhism. His History 
of Buddhism . written in the Dutch language but translated into French and German, 
appeared in 18*2-4 and is still considered a standard work. He also contributed a 
Manual of Buddhism (1896) to the well-known 'Encyclopedia of Indo- Aryan Research’. 
He edited AryaiQra’s JatakamaU (Harvard Oriental Series, vol. I, 1891) and the 
Saddharmapundartka (191s). the latter in collaboration with the Japanese sanskritist 
Bunyiu Nanjio. K rax was one of the foremost Pali scholars; we will only mention 
his valuable additions to R. C. Child***' Dictionary of tht Pali Language. 

On the other hand. Kras's intimate knowledge of Sanskrit and Pali brought him 
into contact with Indian epigraphy which under the inspiration of James Pkikskp, had 
just commenced its marvellous career. Kras devoted hi* great learning and sagacity 
in the first place to the most difficult department of that field of study, namely, the 
investigation of the Edicts of A 4 oka. Although hit conclusions have not always stood 
the test of further inquiry, his interpretation of those difficult documents possesses a 
|to*itive value and he is rightly reckoned among the foremost of the older generation 
of Asokan scholars. 

The study of the epigraphy of IndO'China was initiated by Krax. This fact is 
generously acknowledged by that select body of French scholars who have distinguished 
themselves in the decipherment and interpretation of the numerous cpigraphical records 
of Champa and Kambodia. One of them, M. Louis Fixot, calls him •l'initiateur dc 
lepigraphie cambodgicnne et le temoin attentif et cordial des travaux qui continwrent 
les .mens * 

With regard to the ancient inscriptions of the Malay Archipelago, too, Kkkn'h 
activity has been of primary importance. A considerable number of the Sanskrit 
records have been edited by him and it is astonishing that, notwithstanding the often 
defective character of the facsimiles which had been placed at his disposal, his readings 
have generally been accepted by subsequent, better equipped cpigraphists. It was no 
doubt his profound knowledge of San*krit which enabled him to arrive at conclusions 
of lasting value. 

Among those who have known Kras personally there is certainly none who will 
not bear a vivid recollection not only of his imposing scholarship but also of his 
unfailing kindness, his unaffected simplicity and his readiness to help and advise his 
fellow-workers and pupils. 



There is hardly any ancient site which in grandeur and beauty can be compared 
with the ruins of Persepolis, one of the early capitals of the Persian Empire. Already 
in the 1 7'* and 1 S' h centuries these remains drew the attention of European travellers, 


such as Pietro della Valle, Cornells de Broth and Carsten Niebuhr who visited the 
spot in the years 1621, 1705 and 1765 respectively and have left detailed descriptions. 1 
As regards the archaeological research carried out on the site of Persepolis from the 
middle of the i9 ,h century, special praise is due to the explorers DlEULAFOY, Df. 
Morgan, Sarre and HER2TELD who by their publications made the art of ancient 
Persia generally known. Excavations on strictly scientific lines, however, did not take 
place until the year 1931. when a systematic excavation of the site was commenced 
under the supervision of Dr. Ernst Herzffld. Field Director of the University of Chicago 
Oriental Institute Expedition to Persia. Particularly during the working season of 1933 
discoveries of outstanding interest were made. 

The ruins of Persepolis are situated at a distance of some 50 kilometres from 
the town of Shiraz and stand on a terrace projecting from the fool of the mountain 
range which dominates the extensive plains of Mervdasht. The town was founded by 
Darius I, who is rightly regarded as one of the most prominent rulers of the Ancient 
Orient and as the real originator of the Achxmenian Empire. Under him and his 
successors Persepolis became a capital of the Persian Empire, but owing to the position 
of the town being somewhat too remote to serve the interests of their world-wide 
Imperial policy, these monarch* occupied it only at intervals. Nothing is yet known 
of the city which by in the plain in front of the terrace. The palaces of the Achit- 
menid kings which stood on the top of the terrace and have been partly preserved, 
arc the most representative monuments of ancient Persian architecture. 

The preserved portion consists of those parts of the palatial edifices which were 
constructed of stone, via. the flights of stairs, portals and pillars. In the construction 
of these buildings, in contradistinction with the Assyrian palaces, stone was largely 
used. It is true that sun-dried bricks, too. were very extensively employed as well as 
timber i but walls, roofs, in fact all that was built of these more perishable materials, 
has now completely vanished. 

As regards the Persepolitan palaces, we distinguish residential edifices and audience- 
halls (a/Wuna). The nucleus of these pabccs is the large hall covered with a fiat 
roof supported on pillars and provided with a front-hall and a lateral chamber on 
each side. The ground-plan is invariably square. Each of the palaces has been built 
on its own platform. An imposing double flight of steps leads up to the top of the 
terrace and to each palace separately. The terrace which is now strewn with blocks 
of marble carries the following buildings: a portal of Xerxes, the entrances of which 
were flanked by colossal statues of bulls, such as are well-known from Assyrian art; 
a large hall of audience, provided with thirty-six pillars which measure 19 metres in 
height; and the famous hall of a hundred columns, built by Darius, measuring 72 
metres square, and provided with slender and richly decorated pillars which are uj

metres in height The last-mentioned edifice, which recalls an Egyptian hypostyle hall, 
is regarded as the finest masterpiece of Persian palatial architecture. 

In this city of palaces Dr. Ernst Humii) has conducted excavations on behalf 
of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. Magnificent works of art were 
found under the dibris of the palace buildings. When the grand monumental stair- 
ways leading up to the terrace and to the palaces had been laid bare, it was found 
that the walls of these stairways as wdl as those of the palace buildings themselves 
were adorned with magnificent sculptured reliefs. On these reliefs the person of the 
Great King, either Darius or Xerxes, is repeatedly pictured in the performance of 
ceremonial and symbolical actions, such as the granting of audience and the acceptance 
of the tribute of subject nations, on which occasions the King is represented either 
walking or seated on his throne and usually attended by satellites. Here wc see the 
grandees of the realm, the stately procession of courtiers and the train of royal body- 
guards in Persian attire, armed with lances, bows and quivers, and also the envoys 
from the different provinces of the Empire carrying their presents and advancing in 
a festal procession. The various groups are separated by conventional cyprcsvtrrcs. 
The ambassadors, recognisable by their peculiar dress and arms, are ushered in alter- 
nately by a Persian and a Median chamberlain on the occasion of the Noruz or New 
Year’s festival (at" March) in order to present their gifts consisting of chariots, horses, 
camels, bulls, lions and, besides animals, other products of their country, such as 
garments, costly vases and so forth. They are arranged in three rows, one above the 
other i each group representing a nation or province is shown separately. These embas- 
sies clearly demonstrate the enormous extent of the Persian Empire whose vast terri- 
tories extended from Farghana in the north cast to Abyssinia in the south-west, and 
from the Balkans in the north west to Sind in the south-east. 

These reliefs exhibit the several nations constituting the Empire, as well as their 
costumes and weapons. The great exactness in the rendering of all the details is of 
special value for our knowledge of the peoples represented. They show us *gift-bearcrs 
from Kush and l’unt, Arachosians (Southern Afghanistan) bringing vessels and a camel, 
Sardians bringing a humped bull, shields and lances; Bactrians (Northern Afghanistan) 
bringing gold vessels and a camel, an Indian tribute-bearer from one of the three 
Indian satrapies of the Persian Empire, carrying two baskets of gold vessels on a 
flexible yoke; Susians (from Khuiistan), with a lioness and her cubs, and weapons 
(bows and long daggers, of which latter a golden specimen from the Oxus treasure

of tribute-bearers can be identified with the aid of analogous representations found 
on other monuments. Thus the Scythian tribute-bearers are 'remarkable for their 
peculiar pointed and conical caps* which they likewise wear on certain Greek monu- 
ments such as the Francois Vase 

By the courtesy of Dr. HnzrEU) wc arc enabled to reproduce two groups here 
(Plate I), one of Indians and the other of Scythians or &akas, as they are called in 
Sanskrit literature. In a letter dated the 21“ December 1934 the explorer comments 
as follows on the two groups in question. He points out 'that the Saka of the tribute 
procession of Xerxes, although they are absolutely identical with the Saka Tigrakbauda, 
are not those, but are the Saka I'aradraya of Southern Russia, somewhere near the 
Cimmerian Bosporus |Crimca|. Of the three Indian satrapies, only the Hindui (Sind) 
arc represented. The animal is meant to be a wild ass, the man in front carries a 
flexible stick over his shoulder, not a scale. The very first figure to the right is the 
Persian usher, who holds by the hand the chief of the mission*. 

The Ach*menian relief bear testimony to an astonishing power of expression. 
They exhibit a remarkable freedom of style: the figures have been rendered in real 
profile, the faces show a great variety of expression, the animals are disting uislied by 
a vividness of motion, contrasting with the austere attitude of the human beings. 
Indication* of scenery are totally absent as well as anything suggestive of a back- 
ground. No vestige is found of those lively hunting and battle scene* selected by the 
Assyrian king* to decorate the walls of their royal dwellings. The same stereotyped 
subjects are repeated over and over again, but this monotony has a deeper meaning 
and is intended to emphasize the supreme power of the king of kings. For it is no 
series of historical events which these reliefs are meant to portray; they visualize the 
splendour of the royal court as indeed Acha-mcman sculptural art throughout serves 
to glorify the king. Among the reliefs there are several which represent a lion attacking 
a bull (a subject rightly designated as the 'arms* of Acluemcnian Persia), and some 
which show the king in the act of slaying a fabulous unicorn. Both these motifs, 
which are derived from Babylonian art. recur several times on the walls of the monu- 
mental staircase. They symbolize at the same time the power of the king and, in 
accordance with the Zoroastrian creed, the victory of the good over the evil principle. 

Persian art is not a popular but a courtly art in the strict sense; it was the 
creation of a royal dynasty. On that account its monuments are confined to the kingly 
capitals, while it flourished at the same time as the Empire under Darius and Xerxes 
(550—330 B. C.). It disappears with the downfall of the house of Ach*menes. This 
Achzrmenian art being the youngest of the Ancient Orient, is often regarded as a 
daughter of that of Babylon and Assyria Undoubtedly there exist numerous close 
relations between the two But it has also been influenced by other regions of the 
Near East and especially by Egypt, so that it can be better termed a late mani- 
festation. in fact, the last fruit of the art of the Ancient Orient. 

1 L. Moon, Sty! hunt anJ Greeks. Cambridge. 1913. p. 54, fig. 8. 


When the Persians had conquered the whole of the Near East, they adopted 
various artistic ideas from the subject nations. What they saw in Syria and Egypt 
took their fancy. Thus Persian art under the Ach*menids developed a character of 
its own. It combined the results of Near Eastern artistic ideals into a brilliant unity 
in which the national element is not wanting. It betrays connexions with Hittite, 
Babylonian, Assyrian and Egyptian art. although the independent development of 
analogous features is by no means excluded. But whatever Persian art has borrowed, 
it has combined with indigenous elements, so as to produce an entirely independent 
style. Eor that reason it must be considered as an autonomous art imparting visible 
expression to the unlimited power of the Acharmenian kings '. 

What lends a peculiar charm to the ruins of Persepolis is the absence of any 
additions of a later period. Persepolis existed for no more than two centuries. It was 
annihilated in the conflagration kindled in 330 B. C. by Alexander the Great who 
with his own hand flung a flaming torch into the royal palace. The story of the 
conflagration which has been handed down to us only by the lighter classical authors 
(Plutarch and Arrian), is confirmed by the recent excavations which have revealed 
masses of charcoal mixed with the dibris. By his action Alexander wished to emphasise 
symbolically that the Ach*meman Empire had ceased to exist. Aduemenian art came 
to an end together with the Empire. 

After the destruction of the palace buildings, the adjoining residential town seems 
soon to have been deserted. The palace-walls built of sun-dried bricks gradually crumbled 
down. The dtbrit covered the whole terrace with a thick layer of loam which during 
twenty-three centuries concealed, and at the same time guarded, the priceless sculp- 
tures. so that they could now be laid bare in an excellent state of preservation. Of 
the eight edifices only a few stone gateways and pillars remained standing to show 
the sj*ot where Alexander the Great once celebrated his triumph. Yet the ruins of 
Persepolis are still imposing by those monumental remains by reason of the pillars, gateways 
and grand staircases which make the whole terrace one of the wonders of the 
Ancient World. 




No excavations were carried out at Mohenjo-daro owing to the retirement of 
Dr. E. J. H. Mackay, whilst at Harappa little work was done. We understand that 
Dr. Mackay is bringing out a book on •Further Excavations at Mohenjo-daro’. As 
regards the mysterious Indus Valley script, we may draw attention to a paper on 
•Seals of ancient-lndian style found at Ur* published by Mr. C. J. Gann in the Pro-

Director-General of Archxology. 


cccdings of the British Academy, vol. XVIII. Mr. G. de Hkvesv's startling discovery 
that the script of the Indus Valley shows certain analogies to that found on wooden 
tablets in the Easter Island has evoked considerable interest. 

The explorations conducted by Sir John Marshall on the site of Taxila have 
brought to light another Buddhist monastery which exceeds in size all edifices of its 
class known in the North-West. The locality where it was found is called KalawOn. 
The site yielded a copper plate inscribed in Kharoshjhi characters. In this inscription 
the monastery from the ruins of which it was exhumed is indicated by the name of 
Chhadaiila. The document, which is dated in the year 1 34. has been edited by Professor 
Sten Konow It is of considerable importance as it supplies a reliable basis for the 
dating of the Gandhara sculptures which were discovered along with it. 

An event of importance was the opening of the Curzon Museum of Archeology 
at Mathura by Sir Malcolm Hailey, Governor of the United Provinces, on the a s' k 
January 1933. In the course of his speech H. E. gave the history of the Mathura 
Museum. It was Mr. F. S. Growsi who started the collection of sculptures and 
inscriptions which he himself had excavated during his collectorship of the District. It 
was housed in a very omate building which had originally been intended for a rest- 
house of Indian gentlemen of rank. The subsequent growth of the collection was 
mainly due to the infatigable labours of the late Kai Bahadur Pt. Radii* Krishna. 
Among the numerous important pieces which he recovered we need only mention the 
Yaksha of Parkham, the N'Aga of thhargaon. the statues of Kanishka and other 
princes of the Kushaga dynasty and the two sacrificial posts of IsApur. From 1911 
Pt. Radica Krishna was in charge of the Museum as Honorary Curator. The old 
museum soon proved too small to contain the ever growing number of sculptures. In 
1919 the local Government deckled to provide a suitable building to house the col- 
lection, it was completed in 1939 at a cost of Rs. 1.60.000. Moreover a grant of 
Rs. 10.000 was sanctioned to cover the expense of the removal of the exhibits to 
the new building. They were arranged under the personal supervision of Rai Bahadur 
Rama Prasad Ciianda. It was on the special wish of Pt. Radha Krishna lhal the 
new Museum was named after Lord Cuuon who during his Viccroyalty has done so 
much to promote archxological research in India. 

The foundation of a local archxological Society at Allahabad is another event 
which deserves to be mentioned. Excavations on the site of Kosam. the ancient Kausambl, 
arc contemplated. 

The Archxological Department of Gwalior under the direction of Mr. M. B. Garde 
carried out some remarkable excavations at Gyaraspur, a village 23 miles to the 
north-east of Bhiba, which yielded the remains of a huge Vaishnava temple of the 
io' h century A. D., some beautiful images and carvings and three fragments of a 
large Sanskrit inscription — a firaiasii — connected with the construction of a temple.

The recovered portion of the epigraph mentions the names of three kings of a 
hitherto unknown royal dynasty, namely, Sivagana, Chamundaraja and Mahendrapala. 

On the famous Buddhist site of N'alanda in Southern Bihar the excavations carried 
on during a number of years were continued. Hitherto eight monastic buildings, a 
large s tafia and other religious edifices had been discovered. Now a ninth monastery 
has been brought to light. In the course of its excavation as many as seventy-five 
images of metal and stone representing Buddhist and Brahmanical deities were recovered. 
It may now be considered as definitely sealed that the bronze statuettes belonging 
to the monastery which the Sailendra king Balaputra had founded at Nalanda were 
not imported from Java but must have been manufactured by local craftsmen Among 
the minor antiquities found at N'alanda there were some 3000 objects of burnt or 
unburnt clay, including miniature models of (haityas, as well as seals and sealings'. 
Several of the latter are inscribed ; the inscription usually reads : Sn-Nalanda-mahavi- 
ManyaryaiMktkuiamgkasya , 'Of the Community of the Venerable Friars (residing) 
at the Great Monastery of Srl-NilandA*. Incidentally these monastic sealings are of 
interest for the identification of other Buddhist sites, like that of Kasia, where similar 
discoveries have been made. They prove that these inscribed objects were not imported 
from elsewhere and therefore record the name of the convent in the ruins of which 
they were found. 

In the course of excavations at Rajgir, the andent Rajagriha, conducted in 1905 — 6 
by Sir John Marshall and Dr. Theodor Bloch a curious brick structure, called Maijiyar 
Math, raised on a circular plan and decorated with remarkable terra cotta figures of 
Nagas and other divinities, had been discovered, the exact nature of which it wan 
impossible then to establish. Fresh explorations have now made it clear that this enig- 
matical structure consists of two buildings raised the one upon the other, the lower one 
being a circular &aiva shrine and the upper one a Buddhist sluf>a of the 8' fc or 9 ,h 
century A. D. A fragment of a stone sculpture which came to light in this excavation 
contains the name of the mountain Yipula, one of the five hills by which the ancient 
royal city of Rajagriha was surrounded. On account of its being engirdled by mountains 
the town was also known by the name of Girivraja. 

The excavation of the great temple of Pah&rpur in the Rajshahi district of Bengal 
has now been brought to completion '. At a small distance to the east of the temple the 
recent explorations have brought to light a shrine dedicated to the Buddhist goddess 
Tara. For further explorations carried out in Bengal by various archaeologists, we may 
refer to the special article which Mr. H. E. Stamj-Tok has contributed to the present 
volume. Here we wish only to record the discovery of an exquisitely carved Vishnu 
image of colossal size which was found at Itahar in the Dinajpur district. It has been 
deposited in the Indian Museum at Calcutta.

In the month of March 1933 a discover) of great interest was made by Mr. T. G. 
Aravamuda Iyengar of the Madras Museum at Satyamangalam, a village 7 miles west 
of the famous Fort of Gingee. It consists of a large number of stone sculptures repre- 
senting Vishnu, Rudra, Silrya and other deities of the Brahmanical l’antheon. These 
images, which are reported to be well preserved and of excellent workmanship, are 
ascribed by the discoverer to the time between 700 and 850 A.D. They exhibit a 
transition from the late Pallava to the early Chola period. The collection has been 
removed to the Government Museum at Madras. 

In the field of Moslim archaeology a find of importance was made at Old-Delhi 
by Khan Bahadur Maulwi Zafar Hasan. On the site of Jahanpanah, one of the six 
cities which preceded the capital founded by the Great Mogul Shah Jahan, he laid 
bare the remains of an extensive building which is believed to be the palace of 
Mubammad-bin-Tughlaq ( 1 — 51). the second ruler of the Tugblaq dynasty. A large 

hall, measuring 300 by 210 feet, which must have been supported on 300 wooden 
pillars is believed to be identical with the Qafr i haiar-Sutun or ‘Thousand-pillared 
Hall’ described by lbn Ba«u|a. 

For a number of years extensive works of repair and restoration have been car- 
ried out in the Lahore Fort under the superintendence of Mr. J. F. Blakiston. In 
the next issue of the Bibliography we hope to publish an account of this interesting work. 

Two more events of a personal character we wish briefly to commemorate. On 
the a6' h November 193a was Sir Aurcl Strim's seventieth birth day. Few arch.xolo- 
gists can look back on such an amount of epoch-making exploratory work published 
in the most perfect form, as Sir Aurel Smut has produced. But it will be hard indeed 
to point to any other explorer who at the age of seventy still carries on his work 
in the field under conditions which would deter a man of half that number of year*. 
While offering the veteran archeologist our congratulations, we wish to thank him 
for the warm interest which he has shown on many occasions in the Kern Institute 
and its work. 

We do not wish to conclude this survey without mentioning the death of Mr. 
Henry Cocsam which occurred at Tunbridge- Wells, Kent, on 5“ November 1933. 
Mr. Cousens joined the Archeological Survey of Western India in 1861 as a drafts- 
man and an assistant to Dr. James Burgess. From 1891 till his retirement in 1910 
he was Superintendent of the Western or Bombay Circle. In that capacity he rendered 
excellent services in the listing, preservation and survey of the numberless monuments 
in his charge and, besides contributing valuable papers to the Annual Reports of the 
Archeological Survey, produced a considerable number of well-illustrated volumes on 
the architectural remains of Bijapur, Gujarat, Ka^iiiwar and Sind. Mr. Cousens was 
a conscientious and reliable worker and a first-class draftsman and photographer. He 
made a complete photographic survey of the sculptures of S2nchi ; we understand that 
the publication of these beautiful photographs is shortly to be expected. Mr. Cousens 
died at the age of nearly eighty years.

Asiua) bibliography, VIII. a 



In vol. XIX of the Journal of the Bihar and Orissa Restarch Society Mr. K. 
P. Javaswal undertakes to fill the blank in the history of Northern India between 
the Kushans and the Guptas, drawing his evidence from the PurSijas, the play called 
Kaumudimakotsava, the poem named Bkataiataka, inscriptions and coins. He asserts 
that the Kushans were defeated by the Bhlraiivas about 180 A. D., and that about 
344 A. D. the Bharaiivas and Vakatakas were amalgamated in the person of Rudra- 
scna I whose father was a Vlkifaka while his mother was a Bhiraiiva. The Vskatakas 
are know from copper-plate inscriptions chiefly found in Berir or the Bombay Presi- 
dency, with one or two bare mentions of their name in Baghelkhand, and three 
inscriptions at Ajaijii. The BharaAivas arc specifically mentioned only in the genealogy 
on the Vakataka plates, where Rudrasena 1 is shown to be the grand son of Bhava 
Naga who is described as a Bharatiya. 

In attempting to fit the Pauranic accounts to this reading of history Mr. Javaswal 
begins with the lists of the Naga dynasties, and equates some of thetn with the 
names on the coins found at Mathura His identification* are not very convincing, 
as he has to place Jsesha-data of the coins before Rama-data, while the true order 
is probably the reverse. Moreover Siiu-chandradata whose coin was published by 
Professor Ramon' must be much later than 10 B. C. — 35 A D., the date he assign* 
to the Naga-king Situ nandi. Some of the Mathura coins he describes as struck by 
the later Naga rulers, who are referred to but not named in the Purlnas, arc pro- 
bably earlier than those of Rama data, and one of them w-as struck by a Satrap (Siva- 
data) not by a Rijl. Lastly, while the coins were certainly struck by rulers in the 
Doflb, the Puraoas describe the Xagas as rulers of Vidita. 

Mr. Javaswal takes the word ‘Nava’ (Nikas or Nlgas) in the well-known pas- 
sage describing the rulers of Champavati and Mathura as a name instead of the 
number nine, and describes Navanlga as the first of the BharaAiva rulers. He identi- 
fies him as the striker of a well-known series of coins found chiefly at Kosambl the 
inscription on which has been variously read as .Vaasa, Detasa or as part of a name 
•navaia. Nava-nSga is said to have ruled first at Padmavati about 140 A. D. and 
then at Kantit ' on the Ganges, and to have conquered the Kushans. He was followed 
about 170 A. D. by Virasena whose coins are found at Mathura and in the DoSb 
from Bulandshahr to Cawnpore. Mr. Javaswal also assigns to Virasena two coins* 
obtained by Cinninomam near Narwar and read by him as Kha- which Mr. Javaswal

• Coin of M/Jinol ImJio, p. *3. PJ. 11 — ij. 14 

reads as Vi-. This attribution cannot be supported on any ground. He thinks that 
the Bharaiivas then divided into three branches and assigns to one (at I'admavati) 
the rest of the coins published by Cuxnixgham (/. r.), and to another, ruling from 
Kantit, a series of coins which V. A. Smith 1 described as uncertain. Until more of 
these coins are discovered and it is known where the)- are found, it is purely specu- 
lative to assign them to Kantit. The third branch at MathurA is said never to have 
struck coins. 

Accepting a suggestion by V. A. Smith (/. t. p. 19J, 197, n. a) that there 
were two rulers called Vtrasena. Mr. Javaswal professes to read the name on the 
second scries as Pravarasrna, and also a date 76. It seems probable that Sami was 
mistaken in dividing the series, as the coins are rather crudely struck and many are 
worn. And it is certain that Mr Jayaswal’* reading is incorrect. He has taken as 
Pra-, the first syllable of the name he reads, a portion of a nandipada which comes 
below ‘Vlrasena’, and the marks he reads as 76 are portions of another nandipada 
on the right of the coin. The wheel mark which he notes on the coin, and which he 
identities with a similar mark on a pillar bearing the word Vakatanam , is merely the 
base of the same symbol. 

Mr. Jayaswal also reads on coins the name of two other VakApika rulers known 
from their plates The coins are of the Kau«mU series. One of them is an early 
cast coin, which bears no inscription, but Mr Jayaswal has taken part of a nandipada 
as the name Rudra, and turns a 1 vailika into the symbol for too. He thus assigns 
a coin which is |>robably of the y* century B. C. to Rudrasena I whom he places in 
348 A. I). The name on the other coin, read by Smith as Pazataia (1 i.e . of Pirvata) 
he reads as Ppthvl sena. Smith’s reading is confirmed by a coin in the British Museum. 

Lastly Mr. Jayaswal refers to the Gupta coin*. He adds to their issues a coin 
of the Paftchala scries, reading Chandragnpiatpt. where Cunximgham preferred Rudra 
guptasa. The British Museum specimens clearly confirm the latter reading both as 
regards the initial syllable and the Prakrit form of the genitive. This coin is probably 
500 years earlier than the date assigned in the paper. Mr. Javaswal’s deductions from 
the title used on the tiger type of Samudragupta's coinage are also unsound. 


Mr. N. G. Maji'mdar presents in the Ankerolagua! Survey of India Report 
for 1928 — 9 (p. 169, pi. LXIV) a fresh study of the coins of Spalirises. Ares and 
Arilises in which he supports V. A. Smith’s views that there were two kings named 
Ares, and that Arilises ruled between their reigns. His most important fresh material 
is the valuable suggestion that the form of the Kharosluhl dental sa changed at this 
period, which he appears to prove. It is of course quite possible that the change 
began in one portion of the dominions of Azes which, as pointed out by Whitehead, 
who takes the opposite view, were extensive V

A very interesting gold coin acquired by the British Museum shows Wema Kadphiscs 
riding on an elephant and thus marks the conquest of Indian territory while three 
coins found in northern and eastern Bengal illustrate the later stages of KushSn coinage ’. 


In the Indian Historical Quarterly for 1933 Professor D. C. Ganguli makes 
the acute suggestion (p. 784) that the name read by Allan 1 doubtfully as Chandragupta 
( 111 ) should be Vainyagupta, and the coins were then struck by the ruler whose 
copper-plate was published in Ind. Hist. Quart., 1930, p. 45. The reading has been 
accepted by Allan *, and it is curious that it was not suggested earlier from the engraving 
of no. MU, pi. XLVII in Marsoen's tfumismata Oritntalia. It is possible that 
Vainyagupta should be identified with Vajra named by Yuan Chwang as the son ot 
Baladitya since Vena of which Vainya is a patronymic, was a name of Indra, and 
the vajra was Indra s symbol. 


Mr. L. P. Panmya describes in Ini. Hist. Quart , IX, p. 595, an interesting 
silver coin or seal of quite a new type, bearing the name Prasanna-matra, which first 
appears on the seal of copper-plates issued by his grandson Maha-sudeva (A>. Ind., 
IX, p. 17a). No coins of this line have been published before, but as one side is 
blank the piece may have been struck as a seal or medal. 


The report of the Archeological Survey of Hyderabad for 1340 (1930 1 A. D.) 
gives full information of recent acquisitions, including coins of a Hand Shah I ruler 
(? Amir Band Sultan A. H. 999— toio) which have not been recognized before, and 
a rupee of Shah 'Alam II of a new mint Ramchandranagar, the site of which is uncertain. 


A short note by Rai Bahadur K. L. Bakua in the Journal of the Assam 
Research Society. 1933 (p. 33) on the coinage of Assam gives an interesting summary 
of the information derived from the coin legends about the religious tenets of the 
rulers. He suggests that the so-called Gahori Mohur, bearing the representation of a 
boar, which was much prized in Assam as a lucky amulet was a coin of the ancient 
KAmarupa kings who traced descent from the Variha incarnation. No specimen of 
this gold coin seems to be known, but a silver one in the Assam cabinet is described *

In Bengal the year was noteworthy for the publication in the Journal of the 
Aiiatic Sotitly of Rental of a series of papers* dealing with fresh work that has 
considerably extended our knowledge of the early and medieval history of North-Eastern 
India. The first five of these were contributed to a Symposium on Northern Bengal 
History, held at the Society's rooms in the first week of 1933; while the remaining 
two, by S. K. Sabaswati, embodied the results of two subsequent tours that were 
undertaken with the object of completing the previous surveys. 

Until recent years the earliest known fact in the history of Northern Bengal was 
that this area was included in the Gupta Empire* between 43s and 543 A. D. \ but 
the papers now under consideration carry the political connection of Bengal with the 
rest of India backwards by more than 600 years In the first place, Mr. MaZUMDA*’i 
note on Rushan Coins indicates that, in the time of Vasudeva (185— jao A.D.), 
Northern Bengal also probably formed part of the Kushin dominions. In 19*8-9, 
however, a terra cotta plaque (showing an archer shooting deer from a four-horsed 
chariot) had been found at Mahisthln in the course of systematic excavations by the 
Archaeological Department, while in 193* Prof. S. K. Cmatterji also discovered at 
Bokhara (the ancient Pushkaranl). in the Bankura district of Western Bengal, a 
plaque of a standing Yakshini. As both these can only be assigned to the Suftga 
period (»nd and early 1* cent. B. C.), their discovery suggests the likelihood of Suftga

murder of the last Surtga King). 

A still more remarkable discovery, that was announced by Prof. D. R. BhaNDarkar 
at the Symposium, is the finding, during the course of the Archeological Department’s 
1 93 1 -2 season of work at Mahasthan, of a fragmentary inscription in the Brahml 
alphabet of the Aiokan rock and pillar edicts, recording the issue of an order to the 
local Mahamatra (officer) stationed at Pundranagara that, with a view to the relief 
of distress (caused either by flood or famine), he should (i) make advances in gatidaka 
coins and (a) distribute paddy from the district granary on which the inscription was 
placed. This not only settles the identity of Mahisthan with the historical Pundravardhana, 
but also indicates that Northern Bengal was probably included in the Nlauryan Empire. 
The inscription further shows, if Dr. Bhaxdarkar b correct in his reading and expla- 
nation of the name of the people who were to be assisted, viz. the Samvamglyas, or 
‘Allied (tribes called) VaAglyas', that the name V**£* for Bengal was probably in 
use even in the time of Afoka (say 350 B. C.) 

The remaining four papers embody the results of enquiries that have been carried 
out by the writer, with various helpers, during the last few years in the M&ldah and 
Dinfljpur districts of Northern Bengal, particularly with a view to settling the vexed 
question as to the site of Ekdali, the stronghold before which the Bengal Kings, 
Ilyas Shah and hb son, Sikandar Shah, were able successfully to withstand two attacks 
of the Delhi Emperor. Flrflx Sb*h. in the middle of the 14* century. Evidence has 
been gathered to prove the correctness of WltTMACOTfa suggestion (made as long 
ago as 1874) that it should be identified with the place of that name in DinSjpur. 
The city apparently included an area of upwards of 35 square miles, enclosed within 
a broad moat formed by linking up the Chiramatl and BAliyA rivers, and a memory 
of the battle between Ilyas and FirOx may be preserved in the name of the village 
Ranthail (‘Battle Field') which is situated in the great plain stretching to the south 
of the old city, about 4 miles to the south-west of the spot where the Baliya leaves 
the southern moat. 

A careful survey of the site and the surrounding country (which is scattered with 
mounds indicative of ancient settlements) resulted in the discovery of numerous images, 
some of which may date from at least the earliest Pala times (late 8* and 9' h cent. 
A. D.). This shows that Ekdali was originally a Hindu city the name of which was 
probably Bairhitia. Among these images, the following merit the special attention ol 

1. Dantur.i — a form of Chamunda, (Plate IIu). A sandstone image found at 
Kafashan, a village lying a short dbtance to the north-east of the embanked area 
east of the Baliyi. Date possibly as early as the 8* century. 

2. Vishnu, in sandstone, (Plate Hr). From Kakadighi, a mile to the N.W. of 
Qajbah, the citadel of Ekdali. As it b similar to the specimen of the same image

found at Bodh Gaya that was dedicated in the 26* year of DharmapAla it probably 
dates from about 800 A. D. 

3. A miniature Vishnu Trivikrama of the 9“ century — now in the Varendra 
Research Society Museum, RijshShi — came from Adyakhaij^a, on the ChirSmati. 
This hamlet (which lies immediately west of the Ekdila Maut£) may possibly, as suggested 
by its name, have been the original nucleus of the former Hindu city. 

4. Tenth century sandstone image of Siva and Parvati (Plate II d) from Srlrlmpur, 
about to miles north-cast of Qa}bah (and 1 mile W. of Karanji — cf. later). 

5. Eleventh century image of Rishabhanatha, the first of the twenty-four Jain 
Tlrthankaras\ from Surohar, just across the ChirSmati river to the west of the old 
city. This is an epitome in stone of the Jain hierarchy, as the main image is sur- 
rounded by minatures of the twenty-three other Tlrtkankaras. 

6. Seated Surya (Plate Ilr) from Q*»bah. If «his can be correctly assigned to the 
first half of the 13* century, it indicates how alight was the hold over Western Bengal 
of the Moslem rulers who succeeded Muhammad bin Bakbtiytr Khiljl, seeing that 
Devlkot — the headquarters of the latter Chief — by only 15 miles to the east of 
this particular yajbah. 

7. Vishnu Trivikrama from Karanji. with an inscription Palirayam Jhakkurak. 
dating from the latter part of the 13* century and hence again subsequent to the 
first Moslem Conquest. 

The last-named inscription is of particular interest in connection with a further 
object of enquiry in this part of Bengal, vis. the means by which the Hindu Raja 
GariM was able to oust the reigning Moslem dynasty about 1415 A. D. and to rule 
over Bengal for 3 years under the somewhat too provocative title of Danuja Marddana 
('Destroyer of the Demons'). Evidence is adduced to show that Raja Gari&i's home- 
village may have been Karanji, and that — if not a Koch himself — he probably 
utilised the Kochs of Northern Bengal to establish himself temporarily as sole ruler 
of Bengal. The leading race of Kochs is now known as Poliyas. and if the inscription 
was intended, more correctly, to read PaUrayam f 'kakkurah (the 'God of the Palis' — 
the image having been dedicated either by. or for, the l*al»), the existence of a strong 
Poliya clement in the locality may be inferred as far back as the 13“ century. 

The remaining historical problem that it was attempted to solve was the site of 
the battle in which Sikandar Shah, the builder of the great Adlna Mosque at Pindua, 
was slain about 1395 A. D., while opposing the advance of his rebellious son Ghiyiy- 
ud-din Azam. The probable site of the battle is shown to have been the village of 
Raniganj or Ranigarh, which lies on the Tangan River at the junction of three ancient 
roads. The first of these ran east towards Ghoraghat : and hence may have been the 
road along which Ghiyaj-ud-din advanced from his headquarters in Eastern Bengal. 
The second was the road from North-western India (through old Maldah): while the 
third ran north-west, first to Pandua and the Adina Mosque, and thence to Northern

Bengal. If the identification is correct. Ramganj was possibly the country residence 
not only of the Moslem rulers of Pandua but also of their Hindu predecessors. Both 
at Pandua and Ramganj. Hindu remains occur, dating, in one case, from the 9' h , and, 
in the other, the 10* century, and a fine specimen of the broad and well-cambered 
brick-on-cdge road by which the two places were connected was discovered just inside 
the eastern ramparts of Pandua. near a break in the wall, which probably marks the 
site of the Eastern Gate of the old city.

Several new monuments of considerable arehxological and historical importance 
urre surveyed during the year in the Raichur. Bidar, Gulbarga. OsmanAbAd, Aurangabad, 
Nalgonda and AirAf-i-Baldah Districts. The most important of these is a vikara at 
Ghafotkatch which was concealed from view by the accumulation of (U&ris and has 
now been noticed and cleaned for the first time. It is separate from the two viharat at 
Ghatotkatch described in Fncttmc and Bimuus' Cm Templet of India (p. 346-7). 
Another important monument surveyed for the first time is the fort at Taltam, mentioned 
in the A'mi-Atiari and the Attar A 'a mat in connection with the conquest of 
Khandcsh and Ahmadnagar by Akbar. The fort is situated in the Indhiyari range 
between Ajanta and Kanhar. From an architectural point of view it is like the other 
hill forts of the Deccan; but it has inscriptions which throw light on contemporary 
history. Another important building studied systematically for the first time is the temple 
at GhanpUr, situated about 8 miles north east of Ramappa in the midst of thick jungle, 
which has now been cleared. The temple has a close resemblance to the well-known 
Saivite temple at Ramappa. being star-shaped in plan. It also has figure-brackets of 
polished black stone which show much imagination and skill in their carving. A full 
description of these monuments will appear in the Annual Report of the Department 
for 1933—34 A. D. which is under compilation. 


A total sum of Rs. 04, 961—6—6 was spent during the year on the preservation 
of archzological monuments in the Dominions. The campaign of conservation work 
carried out at Aurangabad. Ajanta. Ellora and Bidar, which mostly engaged the 
attention of the Department, deserves special mention. At Aurangabad the two groups 
of Buddhist caves have been thoroughly cleaned and conserved, and made easily 
accessible by the construction of a motorable road from the Bcgampura Gate of 
Aurangabad to the foot of the hill in which the caves are situated. A bridle-path has 

Au.u.1 BiWiograph,. VUL 



also been cut along the brow of the hill for the convenience of visitors to go from 
one group of caves to the other without descending into the valley and climbing up 
the cliff again as they had to do before. 

At Ellora the frescoes in the ceding of the KailSsa and the Indra SabhS have 
been cleaned and preserved scientifically and there is no danger of their perishing for 
at least a couple of centuries to come. As they throw important light on the history 
of Indian painting after the disappearance of the Buddhist religion, a complete set of 
the copies is being prepared. It would seem that the societies of painters attached to 
different monasteries were persecuted at the time of the revival of the Brahmanical 
religion, so that artistic skill and tradition were completely lost with the waning of 
Buddhism in India. The frescoes at Ellora are nearly a century posterior in date to 
those of Ajanta; but the difference is so great that one fears to class them with the 
latter from consideration of points of technique and artistic feeling. The photographs 
of a few copies of these frescoes are reproduced in Plate III. At Ellora, for the facility 
of visitors, the road in front of the cave* has been widened at aeveral points and 
parking places laid out for cars. 

Inside the Daulatibid Fort almost all the prominent monuments have been con- 
served and much has been done in the clearance of jungle and the construction of 
foot-paths leading to various monuments. 

In the Aurangabad city itself the Department during the year under report has 
taken in hand the special repair* to the Naukhanda Palace. This was originally con- 
structed by Malik Ambar; but 'Alam All Khan, the Governor of Aurangabad under 
Aurungxeb, is reported to have made some additions to the edifice. His Highness 
Ajif Jah Ni*am-ul-Mulk made further addition* to the building and it was his 
favourite residence after his assuming independence. There is a carpet in the building 
which is shown to the public every year on the ‘Id festival when the Subahdar of the 
division receives *a:rs from the official* and the general public of Aurangabad as a 
token of their homage to the king. The building has some spacious halls which are 
now being repaired according to an estimate amounting to Rs. 37, too for the complete 
conservation of the building and the gardens. Of this sum Rs. 7, 500 have been spent 
during the year on repairs to this monument. 

At Ajanta the cleaning and conservation of the frescoes were continued during 
the year and the paintings on the walls of caves IX, X, XII, XVI, XVII and XIX 
have been preserved scientifically. In cave IX a fresco was noticed, concealed under 
dirt, which shows a dagaba with an enclosure and a gateway similar to those of the 
Sanchi Tope. In this painting votaries arc shown bringing offerings towards the dugaba. 
The head-gears and the dresses of these votaries are similar to those noticed on the 
southern gateway of the Great Tope at Sanchi. The painting from the point of 
technique seems to be of the second century A. D., and it is interesting to note that 
at this time the design and the detail of the Sanchi Tope held the imagination of 
artists in different parts of India. 

In Bidar the excavations of the Takht Maball have disclosed some halls decorated 


with beautiful tile-work. The tiles are of different patterns and designs ; some are square 
in form, while others are of different shapes joined together like mosaic-work. The 
designs represent chiefly floral, geometrical and calligraphic devices. Some tiles are 
hand-painted and some have real gold work, which was also apparently done by hand. 
In the volume on Bidar, which is under compilation, a chapter is devoted to the 
technique of these tiles. 

At Bidar two other monuments of the Baihmani period have been conserved 
during the year. They are the Solah Khambh Mosque and the Madrasa Mabmfid Gawan. 
The former is a spacious building, rather severe in style, while the Madrasa has a 
close resemblance to similar buildings of Khurasan and Persia and must have been 
designed by a Persian architect. It is interesting to note that at Bidar the influence 
of Persian art and culture is very prominent; even the Persian royal emblem — the rising 
sun and the lion — is worked out in tiles as an ornamental motif in the spandrels 
of some buildings. 


During the year under review Government have sanctioned a sum of Ks. 5000 
to conduct excavations in the old fort at Warangal and at a site in the Nalgonda 
District on the northern bank of the Krishna river facing the remains of NAgarjuni- 
konija. The operations will commence in the next cold weather and the Department 
expect* to discover some interesting records at both these places. 


In the domain of Hindu inscriptions a comprehensive survey of the Telugu records 
has been made and all inscriptions in that language have been copied and arc now 
being edited in the form of a monograph by Dr. P. Smhivasachak of Madras, who a few 
years ago obtained the Ph. D. degree of the London University for his researches in 
the political history and the inscriptions of the Klkatlya dynasty. The monograph is 
likely to be published early next year (1935). Two other monographs have been 
compiled on the Canarese inscriptions of Kopbal. KukkanQr and KallQr and Mr. 
C. R. Krbhkamacmablc. Superintendent for Epigraphy of the Archiological Survey 
of India, is editing them for the Hyderabad Arthtrological Series 

During the year a thorough survey was also made of the Moslem inscriptions of 
ShfthpQr, SAgar and Gogi in the Gulbarga District, a detailed article on which has 
been contributed to the Epigraphia Ind^Stvslemica. The majority of these inscriptions 
are in Persian and belong to the 'Adil Shshl dynasty of Bljapur. One inscription, 
however, which was erroneously attributed to MabmOd Shah Baihmani belongs to 
Muhammad Tughlaq. The inscriptions of the 'Adil Shahi dynasty throw interesting light 
on the genealogy and the date of assuming independence by these kings.

We congratulate the India Society on the attractive volume, published under its 
auspices, in which Mr. R. C. Kas, formerly Director of Archeology in the Jammu- 
Kashmir State, has described the ancient monuments of his native country. It is provided 
with a Foreword by Sir Francis Youkhcsbakd, the President of the India Society, 
and with an Introduction by Professor A. Focam. The book, as explained by the 
author in his Foreword, ‘has been planned to suit the convenience and the requirements 
of the visitor who, without desiring any great erudition, takes an intelligent interest 
in the subject of Archeology". Although Mr. Kak’s volume is intended therefore to 
be a guidebook for the benefit of the intelligent tourist, it is a scholarly production 
supplying the most reliable and up-to-date information regarding the numerous ancient 
temples and other sacred edifices for which Kashmir is famous no less than for the 
beauty of its scenery. The author appears to be acquainted with all that has been 
written on the subject of his book by previous writers; he must moreover be familiar 
with the monuments by personal inspection. The book is written in an agreeable and 
vivid style and show* a perfect command of the English language. 

In an introductory chapter dealing with the country and its people and with the 
sources of Kashmir history the author enumerates the Greek, Chinese, Arab, Indian 
and Kashmiri writings containing more or less detailed accounts of the history and 
geography of Kashmir. Among the indigenous sources Kalhana's famous chronicle, 
the Rdjalaraiigini, takes the first place. This remarkable historical work, unique in 
Sanskrit literature, was continued by jonarija, Sri vara and others, so that wc possess 
a consecutive history* of Kashmir from Aioka to Akhar. At the end of this chapter 
Francois Bernier is mentioned as the earliest European writer who has visited and 
described the Happy Valley or Me Paradis terrestre dcs Indes", as he calls it. There 
exists however an earlier account of Kashmir in the Rtmomtlranlit of the Netherlander 
Francisco Pelsaert 

The next chapter supplies a very useful survey of the [.olilical history of Kashmir, 
in which special attention is paid to the early kings, like the renowned Lalitaditya, 
by whom were raised the magnificent temples dedicated to the great gods of the 
Hindu Pantheon. The last Hindu ruler was the Queen Kota Devi (1337 — 38). It was 
Sikandar (A D. 1390—1414), who was responsible for the wholesale destruction of 
those splendid monuments of Indian architecture and who thereby earned the name 
of But-shikan, 1. t. the Iconoclast. Among the Moslem rulers of Kashmir his son Zain- 
ul-abidln (A.D. 1421 — 1472) is distinguished by his just and tolerant rule. Up to the 
present time his beneficent reign is hdd in grateful memory. The author dwells with

evident predilection on the life-story of this remarkable ruler who might be called a 
harbinger of the great Akbar on account of his broad-minded tolerance with regard 
to his Hindu subjects and his warm interest in their philosophy and religious writings. 
But unlike the enlightened monarch of Hindustan, the king of Kashmir ended his 
days in bitter disappointment. ‘There arc few more pathetic figures in the annals of 
India than this solitary old man refusing to be consoled for a life of earnest endeavour, 
splendid achievement, and irremediable failure* (p. 39). 

Chapter 111 gives a succinct but clear description of the architectural styles repre- 
sented by the ancient buildings of the valley. It is well known that the Hindu tem- 
ples of Kashmir exhibit a distinct style in which various elements have been most 
happily combined. What strikes the visitor most is the classical aspect of the Kash- 
mirian temples. This is accounted for by the close affinity with the early art of Gan- 
dhftra. On the other hand, there are several elements which are purely Indian. Among 
these I would reckon the stepped pyramidal roof built up in two storeys as described 
by the author (p. 67). There can be little doubt that this type of stepped roof is an 
imitation in stone of the wooden hill-temples which still exist in the valleys of die 
Himalayas and are perhaps best known from Nepal. 

In connexion with the purpose for which the book has been written, the ancient 
monuments have been arranged not in a chronological but in a topographical order. 
The result is that the Muhammadan buildings, most numerous in the capital, arc pro- 
minent in Chapter IV entitled ‘Monuments in Srinagar and its Vicinity*, whereas the 
description of the Brahmanicial temples occupies most of the chapters V and VI in 
which the monuments above and below Srinagar are dealt with. 

From an archxological point of view the most valuable portions of Mr. Kak’s 
book are no doubt those relating to the Buddhist remains of the Valley which, apart 
from prehistoric relics like the megaliths of Yandrahom (p. 111, pi. XLIII), are at the 
same time the earliest. Although it was well known that Buddhism was once preva- 
lent in Kashmir — a fact expressly stated by Kalhana (I. 171, 177) and moreover 
abundantly testified by Buddhist scriptures — . hardly any monument of this religion 
had come to light during the nineteenth century. The explorations carried on during 
the last twenty years have revealed a considerable number in which the three main 
classes of Buddhist buildings — stupas . monasteries and temples — are well represented. 

First of all, there arc the remains of Ushkar not far from Baramula at the lower 
end of the Valley. It is the site of Hushkapura, one of the three towns which, according 
to Kalhana, were founded by the three Turushka kings Hushka, Jushka and Kanishka '. 
A ruined and overgrown stupa near this place was one of the very few monuments 
of Buddhism known to exist in Kashmir in the days of Coxmmgham and Cole’. Mr. 
Kak follows Stein in identifying it with the structure which, as stated in the Raja • 
tarangini (IV 188), was built by LafitSdhya in the middle of the eighth century. The 

' Rajas. 1, 16A — 70.

site, however, has yielded relies of a much earlier date. rc. eleven terra-cotta heads 
and other remains of images which unmistakably betray the influence of the Gr*co- 
Buddhist school of Gandhira They are well described by the author (p. 153), who 
assigns them to the third or fourth century. 

Another medieval stupa b found at the village of Malangpura, halfway between 
Avantipur and Payar. All that remains of it b the square basement with a double 
projection and a large staircase on each of the four sides The most remarkable 
feature of this Buddhist monument b the decoration of sculptured reliefs on the outer 
surface of the walls by which the stairs are enclosed. The author gives a graphic 
description of these reliefs representing "a furious monster pursuing a man who is 
flying precipi tally before it*. There can be little doubt that the subject of these sculp- 
tures is a variation of the matara motif in which we find the aquatic monster combined 
with a little man who seems to be in danger of being swallowed This motif, first 
found in the art of Mathura, has spread as far east as the Island of Sumatra. It 
b well known that the makara b often used in the decoration of staircases. 

The archeologist will read with special delight the account of the excavations 
carried out by Mr. Kaic on the Buddhist site of Hlrwan (p. 105 — 11). The village, 
situated about 1 j miles to the north west of the famous Shalimir Garden near Srinagar, 
retains in a strongly modified form the ancient name of Shajarhadvana, the "Grove 
of the Six Saints*, by which the locality b mentioned in the Rajatarattgini (I, 173). 
Even in the days of Kalhana it was remembered that this spot had once been hallowed 
by the presence of the great teacher Nigirjuna 

The excavations on this site which, as far as we know, are here for the first 
time described in some detail and with suitable illustrations \ have revealed the exis- 
tence of walls built in the ‘diaper-rubble’ style well known from Gandhiira and Taxila. 
They also yielded a medium sized stupa, under the foundations of which a copper 
coin of Toramina. the Hun king of the fifth century, was discovered. A building of 
an earlier date and of greater antiquarian interest b the large apsidal temple occu- 
pying the highest terrace. 

The explorations of the last twenty years have made it abundantly clear that 
temples of this early type (apart from the enigmatical 'Tank building' of Mohenjo-daro, 
we may even regard it as the earliest type known in India) once must have existed 
all over the country. Sir John Marshall has discovered them both at Taxila and at 
Sanchi; Mr. LoNcmmst excavated several specimens at Nagaijunikonda on the banks 
of the Kistna river, whereas others had previously been found by Mr. Rea at Ramatlrthan 
and Sanluram in the Vlzagapatam dbtrict*. Two complete examples of this early 
temple architecture are still known to exist in the South : the one at Ter, the ancient

Tagara, on the western boundaries of Hyderabad- Deccan and the other at Chcrarla 
in the Guntur district of Madras. The well-known rock-cut ehaitya-haXh, of Western 
India are, of course, cave-temples of exactly the same type. 

The peculiar 'apsidal' shape of these shrines is to be accounted for from the 
object of worship, the early ikaitya or stupa raised on a circular plan, which they 
were intended to enshrine. Hence the Prakrit name iluttyagkara (Sanskrit t haityagriha ) 
by which temples of this kind are designated in inscriptions. The term eiailya applies 
to the enshrined stupa and the use of the word with reference to the whole temple, 
not uncommonly met with in the works of archaeologists, is therefore to be discarded. 

The explorations of Harwan have now for the first time, I believe, revealed the 
existence of such an early temple in Kashmir. The wonderful tiled pavement of the 
courtyard (160 by 124) feet) which surrounds the apsidal temple adds not a little to 
its interest. The tiles which are numbered with Kharoshfhl numerals, show a great variety 
of curious designs which are well illustrated on plates XIX— X LI. They include the 
motif of the garland-carriers well known from the art of Gandh&ra.

Among Urahmanical monuments of Kashmir the author pays special attention to 
the two temples which King Avantivarman (855 — 883) raised on the left bank of the 
Vitastfl near the village Avantipur which up to the present day retains the name of the 
royal founder. These two temples are not so famous as the earlier sanctuary which 
the great Lalitaditya dedicated to the solar deity at Martand and which even in its 
sadly ruined condition is impressive by its picturesque appearance and imposing situation. 
The two temples which Avantivarman dedicated tu Vishriu and Siva under the names 
of Avantisvamin and Avan&vara have likewise been destroyed by the iconoclast. But 
the careful excavations carried out in 1913 — 14 by Mr. D. R. Sahni, while in charge 
of the ancient monuments of Kashmir, have added a great deal to our knowledge of 
these two religious edifices. 

The thoroughly scientific manner in which Mr. Sahhi has published the account 
of his explorations leaves nothing to be desired. There are, however, a few icono- 
graphical explanations in which we venture to differ from his conclusions and which it 


will perhaps be useful here to record. The two reliefs found on the front faces of the 
dies of the pedestal which flank the staircase leading up to the sanctum (Plate IV) 
arc interpreted both by Mr. Sued and by Mr. K.oc as representations of the god 
Vishnu accompanied by Lakshmi and another goddess It seems to me much more 
probable that the two groups are meant for Kamadeva seated between his wives Rati 
and Prlti, not only on account of the amorous attitude of the central personage, but 
also on account of his attributes. He carries not only a bow but also an arrow ending 
in a flower which he holds with one of his right hands in front of his body. The 
parrots, too, appertain to Kama. 

The two inner panels, facing each other, of the same staircase are particularly 
interesting (Plate IVd). They show each a group of persons among whom a male 
personage is most prominent by his large size in relation to the other figures. On 
one of the two relief*, that on the left, this central figure is bearded and wears a crown. 
His right hand is raised as in reverential salutation and his left seems to hold a 
water-vessel In the corresponding panel to the right the central personage, likewise 
a male but here distinguished by a moustache and a curious head-dress, is shown in 
the same attitude. In the left-hand panel the protagonist is followed by a female of 
medium size. Mr. Kak observes that she wears a scarf over her head in the same 
fashion as is still observed by the women of Kashmir. In the right-hand panel there 
is also a medium-sized figure standing behind the principal person, but here this satel- 
lite appears to be a male. The remaining figures of both groups, which are consider- 
ably smaller in size, seem partly to carry offerings or to express reverence by their 
attitude. ‘The whole group'. Mr. Kak remarks, ‘seems to breathe a spirit of profound 
devotion to some undefined object*. 

Mr. Saiini tentatively identified the bearded person with Brahma and the principal 
person of the other group with Krishna For these identifications there appears to be 
little foundation. Mr. Kak. in my opinion, is nearer the truth when he recognizes the 
donor in the bearded personage. But in that case the central person of the opposite 
group must also belong to the mortals. The attitude of both these jiersons with their 
right hand raised, a gesture associated in Pallava sculpture with human adorers, 
points to this conclusion. A more definite interpretation of the two figures must be 
necessarily hypothetical. It should however be borne in mind that the temple of Vishnu 
to which these sculptures belong was founded by Avantivarman previous to his accession*. 
I feel therefore inclined to recognize the founder Avantivarman in the man with the 
moustache, whereas the crowned person with the beard would be his predecessor 
UtpalapJda. It would be interesting if the two figures in reality represented the first ruler of 
the Utpala dynasty and the last scion of the house of Karkota. But until further evidence 
is forthcoming, the proposed identification should be considered as purely conjectural.

The book concludes with a ‘Short Bibliography on the History and Archaeology 
of Kashmir’*. A series of seventy-seven excellent plates is an indispensable adjunct 
for the right understanding of the text. 

The fine volume produced by Mr. Kak is well calculated to draw anew the 
attention of artists and scholars all over the world to the wealth of antiquarian monuments 
which the Valley of Kashmir contains. May it also serve to render the local authorities 
fully alive to the great responsibilities which the possession of such a treasure-house 
of art and history involves.

Among the most striking of the remains at the ancient capitals of Ceylon are 
the stone baths, called pokun* (Pali pokkkaratti, Sanskrit puihkarint) in Sinhalese. 
At Anuradhapura and Po|onnaruva as well as at the less well-known sites in the 
island, there exist numerous examples of these pekunas. varying in sire, in design and 
in artistic beauty. We have pukuttMt of a very simple pattern, being nothing more 
than small rectangular excavations with sides built of brick or rubble, large baths of 
elaborate design ornamented with stone work of excellent quality, and others of such 
artistic designs as the stone-built Lotus Bath at Polonnaruva which, as the name 
implies, resembles a full-blown lotus of eight petals. All these baths were, in ancient 
days, supplied with water from the neighbouring reservoirs by means of under ground 
pipes and there were similar passages for draining off the water when necessary. It is 
needless to mention that these underground passages are now all blocked up, so that 
at present the ancient pokunat, in which the rain-water stagnates, have become prolific 
breeding places of the malarial mosquito. 

The great majority of them, like most of the architectural remains at Anuradhapura 
and Polonnaruva, once belonged to the various monastic establishments. Of secular 
baths, very few examples remain; and among them the most important is the one 
now known as Kumara Pokuna (‘the Prince s Bath*), near the ruins of the palace of 
ParakramabShu I at Polonnaruva (Plate V). It is situated just outside the eastern 
enclosure of the Citadel, which was set apart entirely for royal buildings; but a flight 
of stone steps leading to it through a postern gate in the wall from the outer precincLs 
of the palace shows that it was within the area reserved for royalty. By a study of 
the topographical data given in the Afakacamsa, where the palace of ParakramabShu I 
is described, Mr. A. M. Hocart has been able to identify the Kumira Pokuga with 
the Silapokkharani ('Stone Bath’) mentioned in the Chronicle'.

When it was first cleared of the jungle by Mr. H. C. P. Bell in 1911, the 
pokuna was in a very dilapidated condition. The silent but steady action of tropical 
jungle growth during six centuries of desolation, and the ravages of man had done 
their work, and the stone slabs with which its sides had been faced were found 
displaced and scattered about. Some of the stones were missing and others broken 
into fragments. It remained in this condition (see Plate Va) till 1931, when the 
Archeological Department, in consideration of the association of this pokuna with the 
greatest name in the history of the island, and its intrinsic merit from the architectural 
point of view, derided to restore it. It was in such a ruinous condition that it was 
impossible to conserve it except by completely dismantling and re-building it. Detailed 
plans of restoration were made, in which the position of every slab and fragment of 
stone was accurately marked, and photographs showing the actual position of the 
stones in the various parts of the structure were taken before the dismantling was done. 
In re building, every possible precaution was taken to replace each slab of stone in 
the exact position which it originally occupied. The old builders had given a backing 
of brick and mud mortar to the stone work of the sides, and in reconstruction a 
reinforced concrete backing was given into which the vertical slabs were fixed by 
hidden steel cramps. The flag-stooes of the pavement, which had sunk in many places, 
were also re set. 

In the course of the work, it was found that, as in almost all the monumenU at 
I'ojonnaruva, the material used for this structure was not specially prepared for the 
purpose, but had been collected from various earlier buildings. In consequence, a few 
of the stone slabs are rather ill-fitting and the mouldings in the same tier also differ 
in style at places. All these defects must, of course, have originally been concealed 
by a coating of lime plaster, traces of which were found on some of the stones. In 
spite of these blemishes, the effect of the finished pokuna is on the whole very pleasing 
and impressive. The various parts of it balance each other very well, and the 
proportions are quite harmonious. It was also found that since its first construction, it 
had undergone repair at a subsequent date. The flight of steps leading down on the 
western side, and the greater part of the pavement can easily be distinguished as 
later additions 

In order to give the reader a general idea of this stone bath, 1 cannot do better 
than quote Mr. Bell’s succinct description included in his Report for the year 1911-12, 
p. 56: ‘The pokuna is shaped as a bayed oblong, 44 feet east to west by 38 feet 
crossways, giving a recessed outline all round, and diminishing in like plan to 31 feet 
6 inches by 27 feet 3 inches at bottom by three graduated gangways. The floor is 
stone-flagged, and in each of its terraces is a low ledge, ogee-moulded, except on the 
west, down which side the only stairs descended. The mantling of the gangway’s 
differed. The lowest tier was given small ogee plinth, vertical block, and cyma coping; 
the second and third gangways dispensed with plinth; and the uppermost in addition 
to its coping, was topped by a parapet of double-cyma moulding, inside and out, 
rounded at top’. 

After the restoration of the pokuna itself had been completed, the surrounding 
area was excavated ; this work resulted in exposing the underground passages by which 
it was supplied with water and emptied. Between the pokuna and the Citadel Wall 
was a channel, with sides built of rubble masonry-, 1 1 feet 3 inches wide, from which 
water was conveyed to the bath through four underground pipes. Two of these, which 
were connected with the two MuAird-shaped spouts on the western side, were built 
entirely of stone. The other two conduits have stone slabs only on the floor, the side 
walls and the top being of brickwork, which has now crumbled away. The spouts on 
the other three sides, which were also similar in design to those already mentioned, 
have been damaged and most of the fragments have disap|»eared. The water was 
drained off through a stone-built culvert. 30 feet in length, a feet wide and 1 foot 
5 inches in height. The flight of stone steps leading from the Citadel terminated at 
the above mentioned channel over which has been placed a large slab of stone to 
serve as a bridge. The underground passages, the stonework of the walls of the 
channel, the flight of steps, as well as the monolithic bridge have now been completely 
restored. A photograph showing the bath and its surroundings after restoration is 
reproduced on Plate \b. 

To the south of the bath were the remains of a small pavilion which was probably 
used by the king and the members of his household when they came to bathe. This 
pavilion has been built on two superimposed platforms, the sides of which are faced 
with moulded stones and friexes of lions. The remains of this pavilion also have 
been conserved.

THE YEAR 1933 


The Bayon Temple, which rises in the centre of the latest town of Angkor and 
which is one of the last important shrines left by the Khmer kings, exhibits in certain 
parts a condition of very advanced decay (Plates Via VID). The monuments belonging 
to this period (the end of the 13* and the commencement of the 13'* century) were 
constructed hurriedly and with such a want of care and technical skill that they have 
resisted, far less than other temples of an earlier date, the inclemency of the weather 
and the luxurious growth of a tropical vegitation. 

The crown of the central tower of the Bayon is no longer extant, and the stones 
of the present top which are still in position have mostly been loosened and dislocated 
to such an extent that they have become separated from the core of the masonry. 
In June 1932, in consequence of a violent storm, a rather large number of these stones 
had become detached from the top portion so that there was reason to apprehend 


the imminent fall of the remaining ones. In the beginning of the year 1933, therefore, 
advantage was taken of the dry season to undertake such works of conservation as 
appeared to be most urgent. It was M. Taoovt. the present Conservator of the 
monuments of Angkor, who was entrusted with the delicate task of carrying out this 
restoration which entailed grave risks on account of the conditions under which the 
work had to be done. Owing to the careless construction of the whole monument it 
was extremely difficult to erect the necessary scaffoldings for reaching the upper portions 
of the central tower, which rises to a height of 31 metres above the floor of the 
surrounding terrace and of 45 metres above the ground-level. The scaffolding was 
placed on the top of the little shrines which surround the central portion of the tower, 
the points of support having first been sufficiently strengthened. Then the layers of 
the masonry which had become detached, and which were leaning outwards dangerously, 
were taken down one row after the other. Subsequently the stones were replaced, 
joined together and fastened on to the inner masonry of the temple tower, of which 
the joints had previously been secured wherever necessary. Some loose stones which 
had dropped from the top of the building were recovered and after identification 
restored to their original position. 

In order to strengthen the whole pile a number of iron bars were fixed inside 
the tower so as to fasten together the outer walls. One wonders whether the timber 
piece* found inside some of the vault* in Khmer buildings, including the Bayon itself, 
possibly served the same purpose, vis. to prevent the masonry from parting. 


The work of preservation on the Bayon Temple was followed by sounding the 
depth inside the eella of the central tower, the floor of which was formerly pierced 
by an enormous cavity. The first conservator of Angkor, M. J. Commaiixe, had decided 
to cause this hole to be filled, as it might easily lead to accidents. On clearing the 
opening of this cavity a well or pit of considerable depth was found which had no 
doubt been dug by treasure-seekers, and which contained the fragments of a very 
large statue of Buddha seated on a twofold pedestal and canopied by the polycephalous 
hood of the Nlga (Plate VII i) '. 

It has been possible to piece together and completely reconstruct this image, 
which has provisionally been placed in the courtyard to the west of the central tower. 
It measures 3 m. 60 (nearly 13 feet) in height, without and 4 m. 75 (nearly 15 feet) 
with the double pedestal. It may be reckoned among the finest pieces of sculpture 
found in Kambodia. The circumstance that its origin is known, which is comparatively 
rare in Kambodian art, adds considerably to its value; for there is good reason to 
assume that it is the object of worship which was first enshrined in the Bayon Temple. 

The pit from which the pieces of this statue had been extracted was cleared and 

' A paper on thb image Oj M. Coots has

appeared in ibtjetrntl of the Mian Soiiity of Oriental 

examined down to a depth of 14 metres during which good care was taken to shore 
up and support the sides, as the excavation proceeded. At this stage the work had 
to be interrupted owing to the appearance of underground water. It is worth noting 
that in the year 1920, while examining another pit of the Bayon in a gallery of the 
second floor to the north-east of the central tower, water was reached at the same level. 


At the end of the year 1932 a new monument was discovered by M. TrouvR 
in the Angkor group at a distance of 8 kilometres to the west of the Phnom Bakhcng '. 
It is a temple which had been almost completely buried in the earthen embankment 
which forms the southern boundary of the large artificial lake known by the name 
of the Western Baray. The excavations first revealed the walls of a central shrine 
built of brick on a square groundplan and open towards the four cardinal points 
(Plate VIrf). The foot of these walls rests on a high basement of brickwork which is 
broken by the four stairways leading up to the doorways. The decorative devices 
employed on these gates, via. the sandstone cotonmtUi and lintels found either in situ 
or fallen at the foot of the structure exhibit all the characteristics of Khmer sculpture 
in its earliest phase, in other words, of primitive Khmer art '. 

It should, however, be noted that evidently the original edifice has undergone 
repairs or modifications at a later date, as is evident in the first place from an outer 
brick wall doubling the width of the original walls of the facade of the sanctuary, 
and likewise from a decorative lintel over the northern doorway. 

In the middle of the cella there stood a huge pedestal, the basin for the lustral 
water being supplied by a sandstone slab, o m. 58 (23 inches) thick and 3 metres 
(c. 9 feet) square. This stone had been broken into three fragments, probably to 
facilitate the removal of the sacred deposits which were placed in the cavities under- 
neath. The basin was provided, on the northern side, with a spout for running off the 
water; a portion ol the spout came to light in the course of the explorations. 

On the cast side the basement of the pedestal had been completely smashed and 
removed; a pit had then been dug in the substructure of the sanctuary and subse- 
quently been refilled with the diSris. This pit has been cleared. At a depth of some 
ten metres the excavations revealed the existence of an underground chamber, the 
floor being at a depth of 12 m. 25 ( c . 40 feet) below the aperture of the pit (Fig. 3). 
It should be remarked that this is the first time that a subterraneous room at such 
depth has been found in a Khmer monument. The discover)' opens fresh problems 
in Kambodian archaeology, as it is in no wise improbable that other temples present 
the same peculiarity. The excavations in the central pit of the Bayon. as we have 
seen, had to be discontinued owing to the appearance of ground-water, but we may

reasonably anticipate that, when sounding is resumed during the dry season, a similar 
underground chamber will be found there, also. 

Among the dibris which encumbered the pit leading to the subterraneous vault 
of Ak Yom some blocks of a parallelopiped shape, measuring 0.35 in length by 0.25 
in width and 0.14 in thickness, were recovered; these may have served to enclose 
the sacred deposit placed in the underground chamber or beneath the huge pedestal. 
Similar masonry has been found in Annam surrounding the sacred deposit of a Cham 
shrine. Various broken sculptures were likewise extracted from the pit. such as a 
statuette and pedestal fragments, as well as two leaves of gold repousse (o m. 025 
by o m. 085) representing an elephant. 

The removal of earth along the southern face of the sanctuary on the terrace 
from which the central shrine rises brought to light secondary edifices occupying the 


tained by means of some Inal trenches, it was found that the dimensions of the pyramid 
at its foot must be nearly too metres square. 

The retaining wall of the second terrace, which is likewise built of bricks, is 
decorated along its face with an ornamental design carved in the brickwork itself, 
and consisting of a series of edifices on a small scale which interrupt the mouldings 
of the basement. Remnants of more or less ruined structures, which are evidently 
subsequent to the construction of the second platform, are still visible on the southern 
face towards the east. 

On the second terrace, besides the two sanctuaries on the south-west and south- 
east corners noticed above, were found two small intermediary temples slightly elong- 
ated from east to west, of which there still remain only the bases of the walls, together 
with a confused mass of structures, paved causeways, and basements of little shrines 
found at different levels. These remains appear to represent later additions to the 
temple building. 

While laying bare the upper platform opposite the principal entrance on the east 
side of the central temple building, it was necessary to remove a laterite terrace of 
late date. In the course of this work several pieces of sculpture were recovered, 
including a door-lintel which belongs to the style of primitive Khmer art, 


•Some interesting discoveries have been made in connexion with explorations which 
were carried out on the site of Angkor in order to reconstruct, if possible, the irri- 
gation system formerly utilised by the Khmers. These researches have confirmed a 
supposition which had been made long ago but which could not be finally proved 
until now. They have shown that the Khmers had deflected, barred or modified the 
course of the Siemrtap river, which descends from the Phnom Kulen, in order to 
utilize the water for the irrigation of ricefield* and other cultivation. The irrigated 
area must liave been of considerable extent to judge from the density of the popula- 
tion occupying the country around the capital of the Khmer kingdom. If we may 
trust the inscription of Ta Prohm ', which enumerates the victuals and various other 
products which had to be furnished to the temple, the total population consecrated 
to this monastery’ must have amounted to 79365 persons. 

The name 'Baray' is employed to designate a whole series of ancient tanks or 
rectangular depressions, some of considerable size, enclosed within embankments of 
earth; they probably served the purpose of water- reservoirs for the benefit of agri- 
culture. These tanks or artificial lakes were no doubt connected with each other and 
also with the river which filled them during the rains, and during the dry season the 
water was distributed over the adjoining fields by canals. 

To the north and north-west of the Eastern Barav of Angkor remains of ancient 
walls have been discovered, as well as remnants of earthen dikes, bridges and chan- 

• Gx lifts, U sttu J, Ta Pro Mm. BEFEO. VI, p. 77.

nets which connected the north-eastern corner of the moats of Angkor Thom with 
the river and with this Baray (Fig. 4). In the same manner another canal running 
north south unites the Eastern Baray with the Baray to the east of Prah Khan. Else- 
where there were found traces of a canal-system which formed a communication 
between the Siemreap river and another watercourse to the east of the Eastern Baray. 
These various canal systems point to the intention of utilizing the water of the Siem- 
reap river for distribution towards the west and the east, and for the irrigation of 
the fields in the region to the north of the site of Angkor. Several branches have 
been traced by which the river-water was conducted to the Eastern Baray through a 
gap in the north-east corner of the dike which encloses the Baray. 

Researches carried out elsewhere, namely, to the south-east of the town of 
Angkor Thom have likewise resulted in interesting discoveries. A number of waterways 
often lined by earthen dikes, starting from the south-western corner of the Eastern 
Baray, then, lead either due west into the Stemreap river and the eastern moat of 
Angkor Thom or, a little more to the south, into the northeastern corner of the 
moats belonging to the Temple of Angkor Vat. 

There exists, therefore, around the ancient town of Angkor a real network of 
canals and embankments which, together with the Barays, depressions, tanks and 
reservoirs, formed an irrigation system. It seems very probable that during the 
flourishing period of the Khmer kings it was possible to regulate the output of these 
canals by means of dams so that the system could be utilixed to the best advantage 
for the irrigation of the field-, in accordance with the exigencies of the very dense 
population which occupied the region at that time.

It is a matter of gratification that, notwithstanding the prevailing economic con- 
ditions, the Government of Netherlands India has enabled the Archaeological Survey 
to continue its activities on behalf of andent monuments during the year 1933, although 
again rather heavy sacrifices both in personnel and material had to be made. On a 
severely reduced scale the work was carried on according to the same principles which 
had been followed in the preceding year. Measures for the preservation of antiquarian 
remains, therefore, still constituted the principal aim of the Archa;o!ogical Service, 
whilst less urgent tasks, such as excavations, reconstructions and surveys, were deferred 
until more prosperous times. The work of restoration at Prambanan alone was continued, 
though very more slowly, because a total suspension would have entailed the loss 
of our trained native workmen. 

In 1933 certain ancient remains were entered for the first time in a ‘Public Central 
Register of Monuments’ which was published in the ‘Javaschc Courant'. The following 
arc henceforward to be regarded as protected monuments in the sense of section 1 
of the Bill for the Preservation of Ancient Monuments (Government Gazette, 1930, 
n". 283): the Stupa of Muara Takus, the prehistoric underground chambers at Tanjong 
Aroh, Pasemah district (Upper Palembang) and the Regalia of Pagerruyung (Mining- 
kabau, Sumatra). The following antiquities were provisionally entered in the afore- 
mentioned Register: the remains of human skulls found in the vicinity of Ngandong, 
Blora Regency (subdivision Japara-Rembang, Central Java), and likewise the house 
of Rumphius situated in the Amboina subdivision of the Province of the Moluccas. 
Finally proposals were made that the ancient remains in the subdivision Banda Neira 
and Fort Speelwijk with the adjoining cemetery should be declared protected monuments. 

An arrangement is in preparation by which the responsibility for the safe-keeping 
and custody of the Hindu monuments of Java and likewise the powers of appointing 
and dismissing the native caretakers (juru kmntki) will in future be vested in the 
Regencies It is understood that, as has been the case in the past, the preservation 
of the monuments will remain under the expert supervision of the Archeological Survey. 


The rebuilding of the Northern Temple of Prambanan carried out during the 
year 1932, has now been completed, so that for the time being the work of recon- 
struction has been brought to an end. The work of checking the layers of the main 
temple which had been set up within the temple enclosure, was continued during the 
year 1933. Some provisional repairs were, moreover, carried out on the Brahma Temple. 
As regards the Chaptji Singasari, the well-known shrine to the north of Malang 
(Eastern Java), it was noticed that the crevice running through the top of the structure 
had widened out to a dangerous extent. New buttresses were, therefore, erected and 
the old ones strengthened, so as to prevent a collapse of the edifice. 

Most important by far among the finds which have been brought to the notice 
of the Archaeological Survey is the Buddha image of bronie which has come to light 
in the desa (village) of Sempaga situated at the mouth of the Karama river on the 
west coast of Celebes (Plate VIII a-d). It has now been given a place of honour in 
the bronze collection of the Batavia Museum. It is evident from the style that the 
image in question must belong to the famous School of Buddhist Art which flourished 
at Amaravati on the Kistna river in Southern India during the first centuries of the 
Christian era. It may. therefore, be regarded as one of the earliest relics of the Hindu 
Period which have hitherto been discovered in the Malay Archipelago. A detailed 
account of this remarkable bronze figure has appeared in the Journal of the Royal 
Batavia Society.

In this connexion we may briefly mention that, in consequence of an internal 
reconstruction of the Batavia Museum, the collections of Hindu antiquities preserved in 
that edifice have been completely re-arranged so that they are now exhibited to much 
greater advantage. Among important acquisitions to the Museum collection wc wish to 
make mention of the stone statue of a female 1 in the style of Majapahit from Jebuk, 
Tulung Agung district, Kediri subdivision, H a s t er n Java (Plate IX a- 6 ). It has now 
been transferred to Batavia from the grounds of the Regent’s residence at Tulung Agung. 

In the Island of Bali L)r. Goats continued the preliminary work for the proposed 
edition and translation of the Old-Balincse charters. Under his superintendence steady 
progress was made with the work of collecting and cataloguing manuscripts.

Most important among the monuments of this class to which the Archeological 
Survey has paid attention during the year 1933 are the Kraton Kasepuhan and the 
Masigit (= Masjid or Mosque) Agung at Cheribon (Fig. 5). As regards the former, in

with part of the Sitingil were restored In the year 1933 the interesting edifices 
belonging to the Sitingil group, which are known as Pendudukan Sultan, Sukati and 
Malang Semirang. were taken in hand and completed. In the next year this whole 
work of restoration will be brought to a conclusion. The Archeological Survey has 
drawn up a plan and an estimate for the very urgent conservation of the Masigit 
Agung. The repairs will be carried out on the principle that the aspect which the

Mosque has assumed in the course of centuries will remain unaltered, and that the 
measures to be adopted will be strictly limited to the strengthening of the structure, 
while the ancient materials will be retained as much as possible. In 1933 the work 
of conservation was commenced under the supervision of the Archaeological Survey; 
the restoration of the first and second roofs has now been accomplished. 


After the discovery of the bronze Buddha figure, referred to above, at Sempaga 
on the west coast of Celebes, it became known that both near this locality and near 
Galumpang higher up the river, objects of the Prehistoric Age had come to light. 
This led to an investigation in loc 0 conducted by Dr. P. V. van Stbn Callenfels 
on the initiative of the Governor of Celebes and Dependencies. Among the important 
results of this exploration we may mention the recovery of decorated neolithic pottery 
together with arrow heads of the same period which enable us to determine more 
precisely the southern limit of the Philippino-.Minahav.ian culture. It is of still greater 
importance that the finds of Galumpang have revealed a protonrolithic site adapted 
for systematic exploration, which is indeed the first of its kind discovered in Netherlands 
India. It will be remembered that the term 'protooeolithic' is employed to designate 
the type of culture which shows a transitional stage towards the neolithic period; side 
by side with the ruddy hewn implements of an early type it produces others which, 
though exhibiting quite the same shape, are characterized by a ground edge. Dr. van 
Stkin Cam.knskis has availed himself of his stay in Celebes for making researches 
in prehistoric anthropology in the I.amonchong country in order to check the hypotheses 
advanced by the Swiss ethnologists Sarasin, regarding the Toala culture. 


Hitherto all ethnographical objects which were considered to be worthy of preser- 
vation, in whatever manner they had been acquired, were committed by the Government 
to the custody of the Royal Batavia Society of Arts and Sciences. As the collections, 
housed in the State Musicological Archive, exdusvdy bdong to the domain of ethnology, 
it is only natural that the Government have dedded to transfer them likewise to the 
care of the Society. For the time being, however, they have been left in the building in 
which they were first deposited, until a room in the Society's Museum shall be available 
for their reception and proper exhibition. 

Under the able superintendence of Dr. J. Kunst, the conservator of the Musi- 
cological Section of the Batavia Society, the collections were systematically extended, 
so that the number of indigenous musical instruments has now risen to over a thousand 
(1075). As was the case in previous years, these exhibits have attracted a great deal 
of curiosity on the part of both European and Indonesian visitors. Among those who, 
either out of a general interest or for the sake of obtaining definite information of some 
kind, paid a visit to the Musicological Archive was a large number of foreigners. An 


often fertile and constantly increasing contact was maintained with kindred institutions 
abroad, resulting in an extensive correspondence and in assistance rendered in the 
acquisition of gramophone records and musical instruments. In this manner it has been 
possible to deal adequately with an enquiry made by the International Institute of 
Intellectual Cooperation. 

During the year under review the conservator completed an investigation, instituted 
at the request of the Director of Education, regarding the spread in Java and Madura 
of the different forms of gamtlan and wmyamg, the fabrication of gongs and the tone- 
systems called log and slhutr*. An annotated catalogue of the collection of musical 
instruments is in the course of preparation, while the conservator has put the finishing 
stroke to a work on Javanese and Sundanese music which appeared in December 1 934

Continued excavations were particularly suc- 
cessful. yielding within the remains of a Urge 
brick stifa (apparently the Mahieketiya of 
the local inscriptions) a reliquary containing 
a bone relic — In all probability the corporeal 
relic of the Buddha which sanctified the spot. 
The Jyak, pillars of which their discoverer 
gives a valuable description are noticeable 
features. Numerous bas-reliefs, sculptured 
beams, aad some more relic -caskets, still re- 
taining their original contents, were discovered. 
These operations make a valuable contribution 
to our knowledge of Buddhism in South India.

Mr. Mackay ha* cleared a portion of what 
he consider* to be the ‘Artisans' Quarter* 
of the late period, but the principal operation 
was the excavation of a large area to a depth 
of some 23 feet below the original surface of 
the mound and to the fourth level of occu- 
pation. A steady deterioration of the masonry 
and the decreasing sue of the houses appear 
to be an index to the decay of this civilisation 
from the Early to the Late Period. Mr. Mackay 
is of opinion, that a recently discovered cylinder 
seal shows that the upper strata of Mohenjo- 1 
daro can be safely dated to JOOO-2750 B.C, 
as its form it very like prc-Sargoaic seals 
found in Mesopotamia. Other seals showing 
a goddess in a fifal tree and another horned 
figure in yoga attitude Siva) tend to give a 
stronger Indian than Western orientation to 
this Indus Valley Culture. It is not improbable 
that these sites will yield definitive prototypes 
of Indian deities and art motifs.

‘The importance of the new inscription 
consists firstly in the fact that it is the first 
secular, administrative Maurya record and 
may prove to refer to Chandragupta's reign; 
secondly, it is a wonderful confirmation of 
the Jain tradition of a prolonged famine 
of 12 years in North India in the reign of 
this Utter king.’

of Ike year 104. 

Kp. Ind. XXI. pt. I, Jan. 1931, p. 23-9, pi. 

This Kkarosh(hl inscription, which was 
discovered and discussed by Cunningham, is 
found near the village of Saddo on the left 
bank of the Panjkora river, to the west of 
the Katgala Pass, on the road from Swat 
to Chitral, where a bridge crosses the river. 
The lettering is partly obliterated so that 
the reading proposed by Dr. K. is largely 
conjectural. The inscription seem* to refer 
to the construction of a bridge. The date 
is the year 104 which according to the author 
must refer to the Vikrama era. It would 
then correspond to A.D. 46. In this con- 
nexion Dr. K. discusses anew the thorny 
problem of the eras used in the Kharoshlhl 
records of the North-West.

The sandstone pillar 00 whichthisinscription AFHY 


is carved was found in a well opposite the 
Chaurati Jain temple near Mathura and is 
now preserved in the local museum. The 
language is Sanskrit mixed with Prakritisms. 
It is dated in the month Gurppiya (Greek 
Garpiasas) of the year 2S and contains a 
reference to king Huvtshka. It thus reduces 
the interval between Visohka and Huvahka 
to a few months. The purport of the docu-

Epigraphical collection 1900, no. I. 1902, 
no. 41$, etc. Of these 1048 records, 191 have 
already been published; for the rest, full 



text' are furnished exactly as they arc 
found in the orgimaL Of the texts gi*en 
600 are in Tamil, Grantha or Vatieluttu 
character', 27 in Tulugu, 218 in Kannada. 
5 in NOgari and 1 in Persian characters. The 
major portion of the Tamil inscription' be- 
longs to the ChO|as from Panintaka I to 
Rijcndra-Cho|a III. The PinJya epigraphs 
belong mostly to the later kings. Among 
the Pallava records a damaged stone inscrip- 
tion, mentioning a grant made by Agga|a- 
nimmati, the queen of king Nandivarman’s 
father Dantivarman, deserves special notice, 
one of the records of N'ripatunga furnishes 
astronomical detail* working out for his 
accession A.D. 8*5. The inscriptions of South 
Kanara show that this country was ruled 
by the A|upa kings in early time* and it 
then patted on to the Hoysalat. Some of 
the Vijayanagar inscriptions reveal that in 
Jsaka 1 308 Dviratamudra, the chief residence 
of the Hoysalat, was the secondary capital 
of llarihara, confirm the information of the 
Katliri Inscription that Vlra-Bukkawa-Utfaiyar 
was ruling in the same city in Saka 1274. 
and suggest that the Vijayatugara kings were 
the political successors of the Hoysalat.*

are the various foreign influences that influen- 
ced Hindu civilisation in the Muslim period 
and whence did they come > In what manner 
did their influence express itself? And what 
was the real effect of this influence on Indian 
civilisation? . . . . Indo-Muslim civilisation is 
genuinely Indian, built up from purely Indian 
elements, yet not based upon ancient Indian, 
butona wholly indianised Turko-Muhammad- 
an tradition.*

mutt be identified with the Nannans of Ka-

From the Preface: ‘The contents of the 
present book foil distinctly into three classes: 
I. The English translation of the Assamese 
chronicle of Srinath Duara Barbarua (written 
1804 — 6), which gives a dctailled account 
of the reigns of Rajeswar Singha, Lakshmi 
Smgha, Gaurinath Singh and the first 11 
years of the reign of Kamaleswar Singha 
(1751 — 1806); as a contemporary source-book 
the chronicle is very valuable. 2. The English 
translation of the history of the first Tung- 
khungia kings 1681— 1751. as well as the 
it year* of anarchy and misrule 1670-81 
leading to the establishment of the dynasty 
on the throne of Assam, compiled from 
numerous contemporary Buranjis. 3. The 
history of the years 1806—26, compiled by 
the author from numerous sources in the 
style of old chronicles. The pictures of King 
Siva Singha and his consort Maharani Am- 
vika Deri (frontispiece) have been reproduced 
from a contemporary painting in a treatise 
on elephants (1734 A.D.).’

•Beyond a shade of doubt, the pee- 
Buddhist religion of Ceylon was primitive 

Hinduism There are four ancient Hindu 

temples of pre-Buddhistic origin at Kata- 
ragama, Trincomalie, Munneswaram and 
Dondra. Skanda (Kanda Kuraara) is the 
presiding deity of the sylvan shrine of Kata- 
ragama, in almost the southern point of 
Ceylon. In Trincomalie another shrine named 
Swim 1 Rock is an abruptly vertical mass of 
gneiss ; the shrine of thousand pillars in honour 
of Siva was destroyed by the Portuguese in 
1622 A. D. One stone pillar of early Hindu 
type and a relief of Ganesa stiU remain. At 
the temple of Munneswaram near Chiiaw 
Sinhalese and Hindus worship a Siva-linga, 
according to tradition erected by Rama. A 
Vishnu Dcwala at Dondra (Devir.uwara) was 
once the most celebrated temple of Ceyloo.’

from Ceyloo to Siam, in order to ‘mode! 
the religious institutions of the Menam Valley

events mentioned in the Siamese chronicles

image to Sukhodaya in the first half of the 
13th century, the mission of thtra Dhamma- 
Intti in the time of king Parikramablhu II, 
that of Surnana in the reign of Dhammarlja 
of Sukhodaya. the invitation of a Sangkarlja 
with a sprout of the Bodhi-trce by king 
Lidayya of the same country, the building 
of the LahkArAma in AyodhyA by Paramarlja 
(1370—88 A.D.). the foundation of the Si-

Traditioaal history connects the Sinhalese 
conquest of Ceylon with a prince Vijaya, 
supposed to have come from Western Indio. 
The author's theory is that the real starting- 
point was Bengal, because Vljaya's grand- 
mother was a Vangs princess, Vijaya a native 
of Lata in the neighbourhood of Vanga and 
Kalinga. = Radha or Western Bengal ; further 
the Bengalis and Kalinga* have always been 
seafaring people, and in the writer’s opinion 
many Sinhalese words and place-names are 
nearly related with Bengali.

Among Sumatran antiquities of Srlnjaya 
two groups can be distinguished: that of 
Jambi and that of Tapanuh and adjoining 
districts CSaUendra art'), both exhibiting a 
strong influence of Java. In Palcmbang, tide 
by side with 'Sailendra art', specimens of a 
different, un-Javanese type have been found 
which partly exhibit the influence of the 
Amaravati region.

followed by the sculptors seems to be better 
and more concise than the text known to 
us. As far as may be judged from the bas- 
reliefs, it contained a summary of the deeds 
leading to one and the same result, followed 
by one of the various results originating from 
one deed. The definitions and commentary 
of M.’s text arc lacking.

P- 269—352: a critical examination of all 
the theories hitherto put forward. The theory 
of M. Mus himself (in its complete form, 
not yet published entirely) has been sum- 
marized by M. GedEs, Ind. Art & L„ 
VIII, 1934. p. 33 f. : -In the closed or esoteric 
cosmologies of ancient Asia, the sky is a 
solid vault covering the world, considdere 



as a mountain whose pyramidal tiers sustain 
the divers orders of creatures. According to 
these ideas the architectural microcosm of 
Barabujur is formed by a bare cupola sur- 
rounding on every side the pyramid withio. 
This latter is loaded with images symbolizing 
the infinite variety of creatures. One container : 
the sky ; one contained : the world it covers. 

what we have before our eyes is the 

upper part of the hemisphere, corresponding 
to the arUpa and nipaJAdtu, the kamodhotu 
disappearing under the rubble work of the 
terrace that intervenes. And this gives M. 
MUS the meaning of the very name Bun- 

butfur ’vihlra of the secret appearing'.

The author discusses the problems con- 
nected with the non-cylindncal button-shaped, 
hemispherical and thcrioinorphic seals that 
arc found in Asia Minor. Armenia, Meso- 
potamia, Syria, Persia and Baluchistan. Their 
origin goes back to prehistoric times, when 
real ‘buttons' were used for marking personal 
property. The author then inquires how far 
certain types of seal impressions (not the 
form) are characteristic of certain periods 
and can be helpful for a comparison of ar- 

c Ideological problems, notably in Elam and 
Sumer. In describing the two chief classes 
(B. and C) the criterium is formed by the 
figures on the seals and by the technique, not 
by the shape of the seals- Many of those 
figures are reproduced in the text.

On a subject of Buddhist Art found no 
less than nine times in the cave* of Tun* 
huang but hitherto unidentified. The picture 
is divided into two parts with a central figure 
on both sides: on the left a Bhikshu seated 
on a lotus-seat and on the right a half-naked 
old man in a furious storm. The author 
Identifies it with a scene described in several 
Buddhist text* («/. in the Usun-gm-tkiag, 
Book X) in which a Brahman, called Rau- 
rlialcsha, is defeated by the famous Siriputra 
in a contest of su|icrnatural powers. The 
author concludes that the subject must 
have been popular in Tun-huang during 
the period of the ‘Five Dynasties' lioth 
cent. A.D.).

On account of the rarity of frescoes from 
Khotnn the author welcomes the acquisition, 
by the Tokyo Institute of the Academy of 
Oriental Culture, of a fragment of mural 
painting (r. J by 2f metre) from this dis- 
trict. The fragment, perhaps the lower part 
of a Bodhisattva, in its present state shows 
a female figure (probably the goddess Prithivi) 
and a male. According to the author the 
fragment fully reveals tiro peculiarities of 
Khotan art by its colour and technique. The 
garments of the figures are characteristic of 
Central Asian customs in the 7th or 8th 
century, which arc also recognised in Kut- 
chean frescoes and accord with some Chinese 
documents. Artistically our fragment belongs 
to the best period of Khotan painting.

The author deals with the earliest painting 
on silk discovered at Tun-huang (dated 739 
A. D., now in the Muscc Guimct, Paris) which 
represents a person of Srivaka type but with 
a double face, that is, resembling the Bodhi- 
sattva Kshitigarbha in front and an Arhat 
in profile. Though the painter's intention is 
obscure, the picture possesses special value 
for the history of Buddhist painting and its 
technique in the T'ang-penod. A* an Arhat 
picture, the author maintains, it would repre- 
sent the prototype of the so called Zcngetsu 
style of Arhat painting in China.

Koktm. no. 515, Tokyo, Oct. 1933. p. *65-70. 

The picture dated 983 A.D., the largest 
(*.*5 by 1.59 metre) and the most perfect of 
its kind, belongs to the Pclilot Collection 
and it now in the Musde Guimct, Paris. It 
1% (tainted in a wiv./a/u-form and shows the 
Bodhisattva Kshitigarbha surrounded by the 
Ten Kings of the Hades, the Priest Tuo-ming 
ty) and a gold-haired lion arc depicted 
below them. Further a figure of the Bodhi- 
sattva Yia-lu tj| Jffi occupies the lowest part 
of the picture. The author enlarges upon the 
origin and development of this combination 
and refers to a legend of Tao ming's visit of 
the Hades in the /Inn Jun-t/i S*§E

leads the dead to Paradise, the author main- 
tains that this Bodhisattva need not be iden- 
tified with Kshitigarbha. The SukhSvatl idea 
justifies the introduction of this figure into 
this kind of painting, but the clearing up of 
his relation to Taoism and Manichxism be- 
longs to future inquiry,

P- 45-6o. 

Though under a strong influence of India, 
the Central Asian Buddhist art developed 
its own characteristics. For the earliest period 



two lines of development can be observed : 
Kutchean and Khotanese; the former b 
impressionistic, dynamic, sentimental and 
realistic, the latter dauic-idealistic, static, 
rational and meditative. The second period 
is characterized by T'ang influence in both 
domains, and the third by Uigurian influence. 
The use of plaster is a remarkable feature 
of Central Asian art in contrast with stone 
sculpture in India. In this respect, the author 
concludes, the Buddhist art of Central Asia 
belongs to the sphere of Iranian culture.

On the completion of his great edition of 
the Chinese Tnpitaka in 8j volumes Prof. 
J. TakaRUsu. in collaboration with Prof. 
G. Ono. has undertaken to publish this 
•Picture Section’. The artistic achievement 
revealed in the Buddhist images and pictures 
peculiar to mystic Buddhism in Japan is 
well worthy of serious study. All important 
work* accompanied by traditional expla- 
nations have been collected in this edition, 
and seven volume* out of twelve were pu- 
blished by the end of 1933, containing 245 
work* abundantly illustrated with mono- 
chrome and colour plates. Most of them, 
jealously treasured for more than one thousand 
years, have been now for the first time placed 
at the disposal of specialists. They will surely 
serve as an inexhaustible source of study 
not only for students of mystic Buddhism 
but for all interested in Buddhist art.
